Magnificent in both architecture and history Shurijo Castle is an Okinawa icon and definitely a must not miss stop when visiting the island. Originally built in the late 1300s, the castle has survived numerous wars and fires. The most recent attack on the building was during the 1945 Battle of Okinawa. Since its original formation the caste has been carefully reconstructed and today is listed as one of the country’s most precious UNESCO World Heritage designated Castles.
