"Entrance to Nakagusuku Castle"
The plaque reads: "This castle was built by Gosamaru Liege Lord and father-in-law of King Sho Taiku. While in its eighth year of construction (1450-1458) it was captured and destroyed by Amawari, Lord of Katsuren Peninsula and opposer of the king."
This plaque was put up by the Americans during their restoration of many historical Ryukyuan sites during the occupation. Today, this sign is nowhere to be found, presumably stolen.
