About Naha

Naha is the capital of Okinawa Prefecture. It is beautifully landscaped with lots of palm and betel nut trees, green and tall Okinawa Pines, colorful flowers, blue skies and white clouds. The scenery here is very southern. Shurijo Castle still retains the same style from when it was the palace of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The stone paths nearby have a very local flavor to them. If you want to taste the local cuisine or go shopping, you have options ranging from department stores to souvenir shops all of which will give you an absolutely rewarding experience. At night choose one of the local favorite pubs to try Okinawan cuisine.

Located in Naha, Okinawa, Shuri Castle was once the site of the capital and palace of the Ryukyuan Kingdom. In those days, the king of Ryukyu was known to handle state affairs, receive envoys, or hold important ceremonies here, and it has now been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. According to historical records, Shuri Castle was burned down and reconstructed several times, with today's castle a replica of the Chinese Tang dynasty style architecture that remained from the Second World War. The Ryukyu-style castle combines the architectural features of China, Japan and Okinawa.

: I bought the black sugar flavor limited by Okinawa. If you like a certain part of brown sugar, don't miss it. It is a sweet honey sauce that tastes delicious! Hailao is a delicious seafood flavor~ 10-20rmb
corn kernels: It is said to be soy sauce flavor, in fact, the milk taste is also very heavy, a small pack is very enjoyable after eating, for me this corn enthusiast is very paying ! Forgot how much money but not expensive.

A Japanese wedding ceremony in Okinawa.
wave above the shrine is the most prominent shrine in the Ryukyu Eight Society, built in the era of the Ryukyu Kingdom. It is named after "When the waves are big, the shrine seems to be above the waves."
Go up the slope from the corner of the street and the Boshang Palace is above the hill. When I was about to enter the shrine, the crowd that had just dispersed was rushing to the door in an instant. It turned out that there is a wedding in the shrine! Since it is a shrine with a strong religious color, if you can see the sacred rituals, you will be worthwhile.
The first time I saw a real Japanese wedding, I couldn't help but feel excited. Even if I didn't understand the meaning of each step of the ceremony, I felt as if I was at the wedding scene. If the tourists on the side, especially the foreign tourists, are still full of freshness, the friends and relatives in the ceremony, even the parents of both parents secretly pick up the camera and take pictures, which makes people somewhat unexpected - even if even Local people are also full of freshness and ritual.
When watching etiquette, I did not forget the literacy. The Japanese wedding is roughly divided into the following steps:
1. The participants are in place
2. The bride and groom are admitted
3. Repair, wash the mind and body with water
4. The prayers of the gods are held by the priests
5. Three ceremonies, the bride and the bride offer wine
6. The oath is played, that is, the oath
7. The exchange of wedding rings
8. Fengyu stalks, to the gods I would like to dedicate the branches of the small poplar tree wrapped in white cotton paper
9. The toast toast
10. The exit
the end of the ceremony, the witch in white red dresses signaled the onlookers to let the road open, the newcomers will Go out of the shrine and accept the blessing. The temperature of this day reached about 30 degrees, the sun was strong, I don't know how the bridegroom in long trousers and the extra bride with a high hat felt.
