Ryukyu and Ramen

We drove to the ruins of Zakimi Castle, which is in Yomitan. The housed the rulers of the Ryukyu Kingdom from the 15th centry until the 19th. The walls are the only thing still standing. They were still impressive and allowed for great views of the srrounding water and mountains. You were abke to walk on the walls and I even climbed up a wall at its shortest point.

We took the path around the castle and came across jungle. It was very cool, but quite dense, so it was hard to see much beyond your immediate view.

For dinner we went to a ramen restaurant. It was serious business. We chose our preferred broth an  then our accompanying dish. I went with a thick chicken broth and some Namba style fried chicken. I thought it was great. We had curry for lunch, so it was a delicious day culinarily.
