Syureimon Gate, Naha
(3.4/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Go to shurei-Mon gate is the fourth time. This is the beautiful gate with bright red. When I visited for the first time to guide other people entered from the left and right the way through King's is in the middle of it's to listen to the daunting task of going through the middle of the little care, right the way through and went on. Since it is always on the right side. But I think 1 times through the middle like you want to, and we went through the Middle, but before I had outdone, passed on the right. Shrimp sliders, I. The same end through where the moment because is not a big deal but I. Also go to SHURI Castle, so next time shurei-Mon gate, in the middle to let you pass will be.
