Shuri Castle, the former palace of the Ryūkyū Dynasty, is one of the finest gusuku (Okinawan castle) and most important historical site in Naha. The palace was almost completely destroyed in 1945 during the battle of Okinawa when US Marines, Army and Navy attacked.
Today thanks to the hard work and dedication of the people of Naha and Japan Shuri Castle has been reconstructed ( re-opened in 1992), including Shurei no Mon, its main gate, and registered as UNESCO world heritage sites. While in Naha Okinawa Shuri Castle is well worth a visit as it is rather unique to other castles in Japan.
