Shuri Castle

Shuri Castle - former home of the Ryukyu Kingdom

Shuri Castle is a reconstruction of the original castle of the king of the Ryukyu Kingdom - an independent country (that paid tribute to both China and Japan) until 1879.

This image was made on our trip to Japan in 2005. Although I had lived in Japan for almost two years in the early 90′s, this was my first trip to Okinawa - homeland of karate.
