Just before main gate into castle, there’s this red painted wooden gate on a main pedestrian walk. Nice photo opportunity, but quite busy most of the time to get clean picture with no humans nearby.

We were in port in Okinawa and decided on a 4 hr trip to this location. It is a high point location and some walking up steps is required but the history and views are well worth it.

You would pass through this gate before entering the Shuriji Castle. If you want to take good photo of this gate you would need to wait patiently as thousand of tourists would pass through this gate every day and most of them would stop there...More
