Shuri Castle has been destroyed by a fire.https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20191031_09/
It was one of the Okinawan landmarks visited by the cast of AzuDai, along with Shureimon (one of the castle's two gates) where the 2000 yen bill scene happened.
I hope it can be rebuilt, I hope to visit Okinawa someday.
No doubt they'll rebuild it. They're gonna rebuild Cathédrale Notre-Dame and they're gonna rebuild Shuri Castle too, I'm sure.
Terrible thing to happen, but I'm sure they'll rebuild it.
Still a tragedy, but after reading this part of the article, it doesn't seem like as big of a loss. now
>It burnt to the ground during World War Two.
>The main hall was restored in 1992
Thanks for the news, I was able to use this in my Japanese class yesterday.
