I was heading for the main building of this caste while I was climbing the slope. In the meantime, I found a gate on the top of the slope. It was Shurei-Mon, the second of Shuri Castle's main gates.

It was originally built in the 16th century, but destroyed during WWII because the castle was one of the bloodiest battlefields. After the war, it was rebuilt in 1958. So the gate itself, which I saw was not old. Yet I felt the prosperity in the past.
