Katsuren (勝連町 Katsuren-chō) was a town located in Nakagami District, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. It is on the Katsuren Peninsula. It was founded around Katsuren Castle as Katchin Magiri (勝連間切) in the 17th century, which then became Katsuren village in 1908 after the Ryūkyū Kingdom was annexed by Japan and the Magiri system was abolished.
