The Main Gate


The Shuri Utuushi (Shuri worship area) can be found in this enclosure as well as the Kudaka Utuushi (Kudaka worship area). There are 8 sacred places of prayer in this part of the castle. A very interesting note about this enclosure is that people still use this area to worship to this day.
