National Important Cultural Property The Nakamura House

The Nakamura House is believed to have been built in the early 19th century as the home of a wealthy farmer. The construction method is strongly reminiscent of the architectural style of the Kamakura and Muromachi periods (1185-1568). Special details were added everywhere, with farmhouse annexes to the samurai-style main house, such as a high-floored warehouse, a storage shed, and animal pens. All structures show the unique features of Okinawa's residential building style. The house was built on land cleared upon a gentle, south-facing slope. It is surrounded on the east, south, and west by walls made of Ryukyu limestone. along the inside of which are planted Fukugi trees that serve as a windbreak to protect the house from the seasonal typhoons.
