Stone Gates Of Sonohyan-utaki

Stone gates of Sonohyan-utaki

The gate was closed tightly

Shot at Shuri Castle in Shuri, Okinawa.

Sonohyan-utaki is a sacred grove of trees and plants and the gate in the photo is the entrance to it. The place in front of the gate was the place of worship. While the gates were once opened only for the king, today they are always closed. So it have in a way become a sacred space themselves.
