A 500 year old house in excellent shape that does a good job of showing how life was lived. Good English support with a very nice gift shop and friendly staff. Fish pond for kids to feed the fish and turtle. Quite expansive and everything is open to the public.

It's amazing that anything survived the bombing of Okinawa so this little gem is even more special for having stood for so long. It is set in a lovely garden, with trees around to help protect from typhoons, and various flowers. The insides have been fitted out to mirror the period and give a nice feel of a traditional home.... More

It is an amazing home. The natural surroundings assisted greatly in the preservation of this Okinawan gem. The perfect location to see first hand what early life on Okinawa was like. It is a perfect location for photos of the family and truly amazing cultural marvel. ,

The sturdy trees have protected this farmstead from the elements. Walking distance to the Nakamura castle. The road has a side walk, art pieces, fire station and flowers along the way. I felt safe doing this walk with my three year old. Very friendly and helpful staff. Post box, stamps and post cards on site.

I just loved this old building full of history! We were told the tour will cost 500¥and wouldn't take more than 20min. Well, we were there for more than 30 minutes and loved everything.

The Nakamura house displays traditional Okinawan architecture in an easy to understand way. The house had to respond to hot humid weather (and withstand frequent typhoons) before there were electric fans and air conditioning. Every element, from the design of the roof, the layout of the rooms, and the setting below a hillside lined with trees, speaks to these time... More

This house was designated a Major Cultural Asset by the Government of Japan and touring it will help you understand why. The entrance fee of 500 yen seems a bit high so, it's a good idea to take your time and learn as much as you can. At the entrance, when you buy a ticket, ask for any literature that's... More

Several hundred years old, it gives a chance to see how the affluent lived a long time ago. Even now, it would probably be a good place to live.
