Finally, the most sacred place in Ryukyu's kingdom is undoubtedly Seifa-utaki shrine, southeast of the main island. It was once where religious rites were carried out in the 15th and 16th centuries, but rock formations and caves are all that remain there now. You can admire them, overlooking the sea, and finish your journey of the "Sites of Gusuku and Associated Properties of the Kingdom of Ryukyu".
