Gusuku was built in the 13th century and is considered to be the base of rulers who control Thuzan (central part of the main island of Okinawa). From the latter half of the 14th century to the first half of the 15th century, it became a large-scale gusuku. The royal family lived in the 16th century after the administration moved to Shurijo Castle, but it was burnt down during the invasion of Satsuma in 1609. In the Battle of Okinawa in 1945, it became a fierce battlefield because it became the base of the Japanese army.
The Royal Eiso king's grave and Urasoe Youdore are located on the northern cliff surface of Gusuku.
