Shuri Castle, Okinawa

Shuri Castle is a really nice and interesting day-trip for anyone staying on Okinawa. It was once the palace of the Ryukyu Kingdom and was nearly destroyed in 1945 during the Battle of Okinawa.

I really loved the architecture, particularly the dragons.

I also like it in black and white.
