Two Ryukyu kings sleep in "Urasoe Yodo" / Urasoe Ruins of the Castle It is "Urasoe Yodo" in Urasoe City, Okinawa Prefecture. Here is the tomb where the two Ryukyu kings are buried on the rock wall of Urasoe Ruins of the Castle. It was devastated in the Battle of Okinawa, but was restored in 2005 (Heisei 17). "Yodo" is a Ryukyu word for "yunagi" and means when the evening waves and breezes calm down. By the way, Urasoe Castle is a castle that was burned down during the invasion of the Ryukyus by the Satsuma army in 1609. Next to this Urasoe Yodo (in the back of the photo) is Hacksaw Ridge. Now it is covered with trees and looks gentle, but at that time it was a place where fierce fighting was fought on the cliffs.

Maeda Kochi / Urasoe, the setting of the movie Hacksaw Ridge / Urasoe Ruins of the Castle Have you ever heard of the movie "Hacksaw Ridge"? The movie is based on the true story of saving many wounded soldiers without weapons during the Battle of Okinawa. The actual location that took place was Maeda Highland (Urasoe Ruins of the Castle) in Urasoe City, Okinawa Prefecture. Rice troops who landed from the Coast of Chatan Town in April 1945 had this Maeda Highland on their way to Shuri, where the Japanese headquarters was located. This area is a precipitous cliff, which is faithfully reproduced in the movie, but it is not depicted that many residents were also sacrificed here. It was a place where there was a fierce battle, but now it is a calm park with a very nice view. Please stop by when you are nearby.

Shuri Castle main hall under restoration / Visiting the site inside the bare roof I saw the restoration work of the main hall of Shuri Castle, which was destroyed by fire in October 2019, because it is a special Opening to the public and you can Visiting the site during the period. The craftsmen of the palace carpenter are working hard to rebuild. But it was a pity that I couldn't see the craftsmanship because it was a Sunday. Okinawa has many typhoons, and construction is carried out in a temporary building called a "bare roof" to prevent rain and wind. The main hall is completely covered, so it's very big ^^ This is the face of the main hall of Shuri Castle, which is being restored in the center of the temple. I'm looking forward to seeing a dragon on top of this. It is scheduled to be completed in 2026.

Shuri Castle main hall under restoration / In October 2019, Shuri Castle burned down overnight. Currently, construction work is being carried out in this temporary building called "bare roof" for reconstruction. There are many typhoons in Okinawa, so we work to prevent rain and wind. I remember when I saw Shuri Castle burning on TV in the middle of the night, I couldn't believe it was real and didn't say anything、、、 it's been about four and a half years since then, and I'm steadily rebuilding it. The place where I am photographing is called "Azuma no Azana" (A Gari no Azana), and it is a viewing platform located on the easternmost side of Shuri Castle Park and at the highest Elevation. From here, you can panoramic the cityscape of Shuri, the East China Sea, and the city of Naha. Shuri Castle seen from here will be on the back side, but I'm looking forward to its majestic appearance again ^ ^

The World Heritage Site "Sonohiya Takemitake Stone Gate" is a prayer gate / I went to Shuri Castle in Shuri, Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture. As soon as you pass through the gate of Morirei, you will find the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sonohiya Takemitake Stone Gate. It is a gate built in 1519 and is used as a place of worship for the royal family, and it is said that when the king went out from Shuri Castle, he prayed for safety on the way at this stone gate. This gate is not a gate for people to pass through, but a sanctuary spreads out behind the stone gate and is a place to pray. The stone gate was destroyed during the Battle of Okinawa, but was restored in 1957. Most of Okinawa's valuable buildings have been destroyed in the war. A precious heritage to protect!

Oshi Castle, located in Gyoda City, Saitama Prefecture, has a rich history dating back to the late 15th century. Despite facing numerous attacks, this formidable castle never succumbed. While the original structure no longer stands, visitors can still witness the earthen foundation of the main castle, the towering stone walls, the Korai Gate, and other fascinating ruins. The reconstructed "Three-storied Tower" from the Edo Period now houses captivating exhibits, offering visitors a glimpse into the past. Ascend to the observation room on the highest floor for a breathtaking view of Gyoda City. My visit at twilight revealed an eerily silent and empty atmosphere, evoking the enchanting aura of this ancient site.

When I went to Takashima Castle around Golden Week, students from a local junior high school came to sketch Takashima Castle.  When I went near the wisteria flowers, there was a very sweet and wonderful scent in the air. Before I knew it, bees and black bees were 🐝 coming to take nectar ~ Even as a human, it was a wonderful scent that attracted me!! I don't know why the demons of Demon Slayer don't like this wonderful flower www I think it's a wonderful flower. A shot from under the wisteria ledge is recommended!! I didn't know that wisteria flowers were blooming in the pond even though I was a local. I'm sorry, Mr. Takashimajo. When I looked at the whole wisteria flower on this day, I thought that it would bloom for seven minutes today to the untrained eye!   On the premises, there is a rare Gokoku Shrine ⛩ in Japan that resembles the construction of Suwa Grand Shrine. There seems to be a rare sculpture.  Every year, I think it's about Golden Week, but it's very beautiful and you can see it. The castle, the park, and the wisteria flowers are waiting 🌼 for you next year, so please come!
