Shot at Sikina-En garden in Shuri, Okinawa.
Four women who were putting the umbrellas up were just crossing on the small stone bridge. Above them, the strong clouds were floating in the blue sky. This garden was used for the reception of an envoy from China during the era of Ryukyu Dynasty. Unfortunately, the architectures in the garden were destroyed during WWII. The current buildings were rebuilt after the war. The garden was leafy and its atmosphere was tranquil.
It is part of 'Gusuku Sites and Related Properties of the Kingdom of Ryukyu', a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
