Shuri Castle was built some 500 years ago in the south of Okinawa. It's not only an important landmark of Okinawa but also a symbol of the Ryukyu Kingdom and the spirit of Okinawans. Shuri Castle is depicted on the lacquer plate in the picture. The style of architecture is a fusion of Japanese and southern Fujian and illustrates the suffering that the Ryukyu Kingdom endured as the mid-point between China and Japan. The castle is also a testimony to the destruction of Okinawa towards the end of WWII. Shuri Castle was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000.
