The word Yodore refers to a quiet point in the evening when gentle breezes drift in from the sea (in contrast to the searing daytime heat). The mausoleum is located within Urasoe Castle ruins, to the north. King Eiso (1260-1299) and Sho Nei (1587-1620) are both entombed there. Built into a natural cavern, it is thought that this mausoleum became the prototype of Okinawan tomb design. The miniature stone shrine inside the tomb and a sculpture of a crane and turtle have been designated as important cultural assets. They are examples of old-style Okinawan art and a reminder of the colorful influence of Buddhist culture. The site is currently under restoration. It is hoped it might be reopened to the public in 2005.
