Dispute kicks up over who owns rights to Nakagusuku Castle Ruins

Date Posted: 2005-10-28

A private developer has posted “no trespassing” signs on the approach to the Nakagusuku Castle Ruins, claiming the property is his.

“This land is my land,” the alleged owner says. “It is not Kitanakagusuku Village or Nakagusuku Village’s. I’ll close this castle ruins right now.” He maintains visitors can contact his office for entry, saying his private company has no time to deal with the issue.

Kitanakagusuku and Nakagusuku Villages are denying the allegations the company owns the ruins. “Not true,” says an official. “We bought it for Y800,000,000 from the owner, and we made a contract, too. The company is not telling the truth.”

The villages have retaliated, posting their own sign saying “this area is a designated area and it is a cultural area. No one may post private signs without permission.” The officials say they’ll take the company to court.

Mayor Kiyonori Arakaki of Nakagusuku Village, together with his counterpart from Kitanakagusuku Village, Kunio Arakaki, have been meeting with the company that claims rights to the castle ruins.

They say the two sides cannot agree, which is why the company posted its sign. The company has told the mayors “we cannot make clear what is happening, and we are not sure if the villages really paid for our land.” The official added that “we want both villages to prove with paperwork that they have really paid.”

The villages say they’ll provide the court with proof they own the castle ruins.
