Former Uezu Residence

Top choice in Okinawa & the Southwest Islands

Built around 1750, this traditional Ryūkyūan dwelling was the former home of Kume-jima's dominant clan, the Uezu family. Lovingly maintained and set amid a beautiful subtropical garden, the grounds of this open house are a delight to stroll among – you can almost feel the ghosts of the past overseeing your visit, grateful for your interest in their lineage.
