Observe Tamaudun, a 16th-century mausoleum for the royal family of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The mausoleum features three different crypts for kings, queens, princes, princesses, and the recently deceased prior to undergoing Okinawan burial traditions. Constructed of natural rocks, it features intricate symbols of the royal family. In front of the entrance sit two Shisha statues acting as the tomb guards. Unfortunately, the crypts are not open to the public, and information is not available in English.
