What is Hanta Michi (Hanta Road)?

The "Nakagusuku Hanta Michi" is a historical road spanning approximately 6.2 kilometers. It runs through Nakagusuku Village, connecting Shuri Castle from the early Ryukyu Kingdom era to Katsuren Gusuku (Katsuren Castle).
In the Okinawan language, "hanta" (ハンタ) means "cliff". Within Nakagusuku Village, the name "Hanta Michi" is used because the road runs along the mountain ridges and cliffs. Until around the 12th to 14th centuries, this road was used as a connection between villages and Gusuku (castle). In the 15th century, it was developed by Shō Hashi, who founded the Ryukyu Kingdom, for the purpose of transmitting information between the royal government and local areas.
The diverse terrain of the Hanta Michi, along with the picturesque village landscape on the eastern side and the view of Nakagusuku Bay, combine to offer a beautiful scenery that delights those who explore it.
In the first year of Reiwa (2019), it was selected as one of the "Hundred Select Roads of History" by the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
