Naha once prospered as the outer port of Shuri, which flourished as the capital of the Ryukyu Kingdom. In those days, Naha had much trade with China and Southeast Asia. Among the major remains of the Ryukyu Kingdom are Shuri Castle, the ruins of the Castle of the Ryukyu Kingdom, Shikina-en, which was a second residence and garden of the Royal Family built in order to entertain 'sakuhoshi' (ambassadors from China), the ruins of Enkaku-ji Temple, the head temple of the Okinawa Rinzai sect, and Tama-udon, the Royal Mausoleum.
