#13 of 147 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."

  • Is the famous SHURI Castle gate was the impression than a delicate feeling. Nearby attractions to photograph crowds of tourists. YUI directly from SHURI Castle comes from SHURI station rail and climb up the Hill, from where one street shurei-Mon gate and forward it through from the other side, back to the right a little bit, not.

  • When you visit this awesome photo sucking SHURI Castle SHURI Castle was to go to the door at the entrance to the AH for a disappointment coming from seteujang Moon People's Republic of China martial arts movie but subjectively feeling though the symbolism of SHURI Castle, and the caliber NIE took pictures for free is a good place to the authentication shot. If you have to pay an admission fee to visit the Nephites SHURI Castle

  • 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.
