#13 of 150 in Things to do in Naha
The symbolic entry to the Ryukyu kingdom, Syureimon Gate dates back to the 16th century and has featured on the 2000 yen note. Initially built between 1527 and 1555 during the second Sho dynasty, the gate was unfortunately destroyed during World War II, though rebuilt in 1954 to produce the ornately decorated structure standing today. Look out for the four hanzi (characters) inscribed on the modern gate, which mean "Land of Propriety."

    Books that introduce Okinawan, program and website to be sure and is said to be the high profile tourist attractions. 2000 yen note pattern, and has been one of Japan's leading tourist attractions, as it. Waiting to do photography and recently was overflowing with tourists from overseas and outside as it is. If visiting the Castle, be sure to call please. Gate of the castle on the Mainland compared with colorful and beautiful.

    It seems major gate of SHURI Castle. I think one of the iconic image of Okinawa. Become a double roof with four pillars, including akahon tile is beautiful in red. Was destroyed in the battle of Okinawa, but reconstructed in 1958, and soon in Naha to has made the return of the Okinawa in 1972 Okinawa Prefecture designated tangible cultural property. Look increasingly antiquated.

    If you take a car originally SHURI Castle, keep torana-Zaventem station not far, this is a real hot door camera view point, because it is 幣 2000 Seattle, my calculations keep torana clothing decoration in photos next to bian Ryukyu Stadium experimental results.

    It's sad and unfortunate what happened to Okinawa during WWII. I'm glad that Shuri Castle was restored so future visitors to Okinawa could learn about the Ryukyu kingdom and see this wonderful location

    Historical treasure restored from the damaged ruins after WWII. I wish we had more time to explore everything but a visit is well worth your time.
