Nakijin Castle is the old residence of the ruler of Hokuzan, the northern kingdom of Okinawa in the 14th century. The castle is situated 100 meters above sea level on a hill overlooking northern Okinawa as well as Ihei and Izena islands to the northwest. The high stone walls surrounding the ruins are lit up at night, and the path leading to the castle from the gate is lined with candles, adding a touch of romance to this historic site. Traditional Okinawan entertainment is performed on the specially erected stage during the festival.
