Syureimon Gate, Naha

3.8
#8 of 52 in Sightseeing in Naha
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • It came to Okinawa once speaking of Okinawa, still "shurei gate" to go through. I feel the time slip to come ago "shurei gate" and why during the Ryukyu Kingdom.  It is 10/1970 this gate to take pictures for the first time. Then as now, has been used as a symbol of the Ryukyu King era, symbolizes the Okinawa tourism facilities. In addition, commemorative banknote in 2000 2000 yen Bill pattern, has. On the day of visit, Mamoru bow front enjoyed plenty of tourists, photo.

  • Wonderful to see living history. Although rebuilt it is still impressive
  • Great castle in Okinawa, would definitely recommend checking it out if you're in Naha.
  • 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
  • Super interesting place.
  • 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.
