Shurijo Castle served as the proud and dignified center of Ryukyu Kingdom and its politics, foreign affairs and culture.
With architectural influences from both China and Japan, the Castle shows its exceptional cultural and historical values in its unique stonework and architectural design. Thus, Shurijo was designated as a World Heritage Site in December of 2000, the 11th World Heritage Site within Japan.
