Shuri castle before:

It was a reconstruction from the 1990's, it was completely destroyed during WW2. Hopefully they will rebuild it again.

 

To moderators: since there is no "general" japan news section, I placed it here, if you think it fits better somewhere else then by all means.

Was just reading about this.  Shame.  They rebuilt it in the 90s.  I guess they could do it again.

Sad news.  I have fond memories of visiting the castle on shore leave when I worked in Japan.  They had done an amazing job recreating the place, every room felt authentic.  Parts were still under reconstruction too (as of 2015, when I was last there).

That is a crazy amount. Last I saw it was up to 230m.

It's up to 368M yen now. Crowdfunding is until March 2020. I wonder how much money they are able to raise.
