Syureimon Gate, Naha

(3.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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." For travelers who use our international travel planner, Naha holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Syureimon Gate and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 古色古香的守禮門,在首里城的入口處,朱紅色的牌坊,有別於我們常見的日式鳥居,反而比較具有中國風格的影響,是很多遊客必拍的人氣景點。  more »
  • Not rebuilt SHURI Castle once before, "said Okinawa shurei-Mon gate" and is a famous tourist attraction said. But now is there as a part of "SHURI Castle", image has faded, but still like Okinawa pomp has. Just remember the tag 2000 yen. Please visit the set with "SHURI Castle". In the recent "SHURI Castle" "neck-du kan (suimuikann), parking is the closest, priced at 300 yen is useful.

  • Come up close (a simple impression), because it is greatly different from the impression you've heard in the past about "where is shurei-Mon gate?" I was told. It was right in front of the gate, wearing traditional clothes in Okinawa, us photography services.
