972 JP - Gusuku Sites and Related Properties of the Kingdom of Ryukyu (2000)

Brief Description

"Five hundred years of Ryukyuan history (12th-17th century) are represented by this group of sites and monuments. The ruins of the castles, on imposing elevated sites, are evidence for the social structure over much of that period, while the sacred sites provide mute testimony to the rare survival of an ancient form of religion into the modern age. The wide- ranging economic and cultural contacts of the Ryukyu Islands over that period gave rise to a unique culture."

琉球王国时期的遗迹
"该遗址群和建筑群展示了琉球王国500多年的历史(公元12世纪至17世纪),雄伟的城堡遗址体现了那个时期琉球王国的社 会结构,而岛上的宗教圣地则无言地述说着古代宗教形式到现代少有的延续。在那500年中,琉球群岛王国广泛地与外界进行着经济和文化交流,从而造就了这一 独特的文化遗存。"
