The house was built during the Ryukyu Kingdom Period (1737-1889) and preserved through the years the traditional architectural elements that give the house its charm.
The roof is made of red tiles like most traditional Okinawan houses, and has been built without using nails or chemical substances but a local plaster called Ryukyu plaster.
Surrounded by fukugi trees and bordered by a stone wall, Pukarasa offers a beautiful environment and the opportunity to experience the Okinawan lifestyle in an authentic house.
As for its location, Pukarasa is situated in an alley of old houses near Nakijin Castle.
The room available for booking can accommodate maximum 3 people (there might not be much space between the futon mattresses in the case of 3 people).
The toilets, bathroom and washstand are shared with the family.
The room doesn’t have air conditioning, a TV or a clock.
If you’re interested in the activities listed above, please contact us via email in advance.

Please understand that since the house is situated in the nature, insects (such as ants, spiders, mosquitoes) or small animals might get inside the house. You can use the mosquito net to cover your bed at night, but we recommend people who strongly dislike bugs to look for another accommodation where they might feel more comfortable.
Please also note that the roof leaks in different places during heavy rains.
There is no air conditioning in the house but you can use the fan during hot days and the stove during winter.
The guest room (11m²) is rather narrow, and its floor is made of tatami mats which are a fragile material. This is why we kindly ask you to avoid bringing suitcases with wheels, as much as possible.
No smoking inside the facility. Fire inside the building is strictly prohibited.
Making fireworks is prohibited everywhere (including the garden, the accommodation and its premises, the village and the beach).
Since this is a residential area, thank you to be quiet after 9:00PM.
Please avoid any behaviour that might disturb or offend others.
You will be asked to leave without refund if we consider your behaviour inappropriate or receive complaints from neighbours.
We might ask you to cancel your reservation until one day before the day of your arrival if the weather is really bad (typhoon etc).
