Syureimon Gate, Naha

(3.4/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • I think if it came to Okinawa must. Women came near the gate, Okinawan folk costumes and photo shoots (charges apply).

  • This is one of the entrance into the castle and is a great place for a photo stop in front of the gate. 
  • 首里城服务站上去就是,必拍照的景点。有人穿当地衣服可以合影,或者穿当地衣服的。我们么有尝试。 附近有盖章点,记得服务站拿地图哦
