One of the Ryukyu gusuku found around the region, the Iha Castle is located on a cliff between Iha and Ishikawa and overlooks the Ishikawa Isthmus. Excavations around the area give an estimate of 13th to 15th century of the construction.

Currently, the cliff has only ruins left of the original castle but a hike around these is still perfect for a day trip when in Okinawa. The government has placed a Torii gate with a plaque that explains the importance of the place and for most, a walk here to see the isthmus is reason enough to make the climb. When here don’t miss the Iha Nuru Tomb site located 200 meters to the north of the ruins.

  • Kinda smells but it's a vantage point for you to oversee uruma city.

  • かなり古い歴史のある城趾。ものすごく眺めのいい立地で、場内にうたきが3か所あるので、気楽には入れないが、以前は社会科見学で利用されていたらしい。駐車場等整備したら、素晴らしい文化遺産となるはず。

  • 伊波城跡が在るなんて初めて知りました。小さい跡でしたが情緒ありマングースとも出会いました。

  • 高速のアーチ橋が見える景色、山頂には二つの獄があり、木々も歴史を感じ、自然石にマッチしている景色は壮観。

  • 怕尼芝に今帰仁城から追い出された北山王の子孫が逃れ、力をつけ城を築いたとされています。 北東に見下ろす標高87mの丘陵に位置し、東西45m、南北52mの範囲に一重の石垣をめぐらせ単郭式の城で面積は3712㎡の比較的小型のグスクです
