So if you want to have fun, go visit Shuri Castle!

The best place to go to is Shuri Castle.  Shuri Castle is an awesome place, because it has things from back in the old times, like statues of the King and Queen of Okinawa. It is special because a lot of history happened there.

They have special events like tea ceremonies, special tours, and more!  You get to see things such as the King’s crown, his bedroom, and the throne room! The best thing there is the tea and cookies. The castle is beautiful! It has flowers and colors all over it!  Also you learn that underneath the new castle there is the original castle that was destroyed in World War 2.
