Founded around 14th centuy, "Shuri castle" flourished as a center of politics, diplomacy and culture of the Ryukyu for over nearly 500 years

It was a royal castle of the Ryukyu dynasty, which used to be an old national treasure before the World War II. However there is a sad history that it was completely destroyed during the war and the postwar university construction. The current Shuri castle was restored after the work from from 1972 to 1992. As the Shureimon Gate is printed on the 2000 yen bill, tourists love to keep them to commemorate the trip.
