Shuri-jo is the castle in Naha-shi, Okinawa Shuri. It was in the hills where I look down upon the Naha harbor which was a base of overseas trade. I disappeared in the battle in Okinawa in the Second World War last years in 1945, but it was restored in November, 1992. It’s registered by “the world’s cultural and natural heritage” as “group made in Gusuku in Ryukyu Kingdom and the related way” in 2000.
State-operated park which consists of cultural asset of Syurei-mon and Enkaku-ji remains centering on Shuri-jo main temple. I split up into a pay district and a free district, and there is a charge for a tour in a main temple. “West Azana” which can get a bird’s-eye view can enjoy in Naha-shi for free of charge, the superb view spot from which I hid.

It’s possible to see the “Ryukyu dance” which supported at Shuri-jo in Ryukyu Kingdom age. A (11:00- 14:00- 16:00-) performance is performed 3 times a day. It can be satisfied with charm of Ryukyu dance such as “Yotsutake” of a showy costume and “Kakekase” of an elegant dance.
