The Ryukyu history and music and dance are fascinating, so I want to go back again and again. The castle was originally built in the 1400's, was destroyed in 1945 in the Battle of Okinawa, but was restored and opened to the public in 1992.
We took a guided tour (in Japanese). I understood a little of what she said, plus Ted translated some for me.
We enjoyed the sanpin tea and ryukyu sweets, like last time.
My favorite thing is the dance. We stayed to see several performances.
Our annual passports are good through December, so I hope we get to go back and use them again!
