Request for your support for restoration and construction of Shurijo Castle

In the early hours of the morning on October 31st 2019, a fire started around the Main Building and other buildings of Shurijo Castle. Shurijo Castle was a symbol of the Ryukyu Kingdom filled with our rich history and culture. The Main Building and the surrounding buildings were burned down.

We will make utmost and all-out efforts for restoration and reconstruction of Shurijo Castle as soon as possible with cooperation of people in Okinawa as well as people outside of the prefecture.

I would like to sincerely ask for your kind support and cooperation.
