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."

  • Shurei-Mon gate is located away from the main castle building the gate and never looked back ", shurei-Mon gate" and was likely to miss because you don't know. Did Gates's, but once the video and images of a gate so went to the Memorial. Taking pictures through the people and just walks away.
