We are deeply saddened to learn that Shurijo Castle’s Seiden, Hokuden and Nanden halls and more were destroyed in the fire at Shurijo Castle Park that broke out in the early hours of October 31, 2019.
Shurijo Castle was the center of politics and culture in the days of the Ryukyu Kingdom and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as Shuri-jô site.
We will be endeavoring to gather information about the conditions and to offer accurate information to tourists and related organizations for the purpose of ensuring the safety of tourists visiting Okinawa.
