Syureimon Gate, Naha

(220+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • 与古代中国有很相近的建筑特点,经导游讲述了建筑的的特点,了解了一下历史。守礼仪,这是很有纪念意义的。因为是随旅游团一起去的,人多的时候还真的觉得地方有些狭窄。  more »
  • The starting point of SHURI Castle, and is one of the trademark. This started out as a suitable certificate in front of shots being launched, SHURI Castle, next to the visitor center, Raymond stamp rally paper will be fit and healthy

  • Hey there until I went to shurei-Mon gate. Goes to SHURI Castle and stop the car in the parking lot in the shop, before that make sure here shurei gate, so let's go another. Pictures... and is called photo shop. Personal travel because is no longer needed. Should come out better in TV and magazines should be rebuilt, and is the slope a bit. SHURI Castle is this way. Let's go.

  • Super interesting place.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • A Super big Plaque rebuilt from fire
  • Nice old castle. You can overview the whole city on the top of the castle
