Shuri Castle, Naha

Capital of the Ryuku Kingdom, this castle was almost completely destroyed in the battle for Okinawa but is now restored..
Fortunately for the Okinawans, but not so fortunately for us, the lacquer was being repaired in the main courtyard so we could not get great photos of this very impressive red structure. Possibly the most impressively-coloured castle in Japan.
