Izena Tamaudun Mausoleum
This mausoleum was built half-way up the northern side of Izenajo Castle. It is said to have been constructed in the reign of King Sho Shin during the Second Sho Dynasty, directly after the construction of the Shuri Tamaudun Mausoleum (1501). In 1958, it was designated as a Historical Site by Okinawa Prefecture.
