1. I like literature, history and philosophy and travel. Traveling around the world, I am very interested in the historical sites with historical stories about China. Jianquan and I, Xiaojian, took part in the World Dream cruise trip this year (April 22-27) - "Guangzhou Nansha/Hong Kong/Naba/Gonggu Island/Hong Kong/Guangzhou Nansha. Among them, I visited Naha, Okinawa, Japan. What interests me most is the capital city with many Chinese and Japanese historical stories. 2. The World Dream cruise arrived at Naha Harbor, Okinawa, Japan at 3:15 p.m. on the 24th (see photo below) and we took a bus tour to Seoul. The capital city that we see now was rebuilt in 1992 by the prototype of the 18th century capital city in Japan. Seoul City has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. 1) The name "Ryukyu" was first taken for the islands during the Ming Dynasty. At the beginning of the 15th century, King Bazhi unified Ryukyu and was given the surname Shang by the Ming Dynasty, so all the previous Ryukyu kings were surnamed Shang. The city of Seoul is the residence of the king of Ryukyu, which was a subsidiary state of China in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty made the Ryukyu King the King of Shangqu, and paid tribute once every two years. 2) Japan seized Ryukyu in 1879, renamed it Okinawa, and incorporated it into the territory of Japan, and established it as Okinawa County. Naba is the capital of Okinawa County, and several archipelagos such as Gugong Island are also under the jurisdiction of Okinawa County. Okinawa County covers an area of 2249 square kilometers and has a population of 1.4 million. 3) Okinawa was Japan's only land war zone in World War II. In 1945, the US troops landed in Okinawa and defeated the Japanese garrison. The whole island, including Seoul, was reduced to rubble. After the surrender of Japan, the United States was directly under the jurisdiction of the United States Army from 1945 to 1972 because of Okinawa's important strategic position. On May 15, 1972, the United States returned Okinawa to Japan. But the United States still has 60,000 U.S. military bases in Okinawa, occupying 20% of Okinawa's land. 3. Touring Shouli City, the biggest point of view is to guard the etiquette gate. (See below) It is the symbol of Okinawa, built in the Shang and Qing Dynasties (1527/1555). The inscription on the plaque contains "a state of observing rituals", which means "Ryukyu is a country of worshiping rituals". 1) I went to the door and looked up. The four gold-stamped characters on the plaque were very old. 2) Pay attention to the Gate of Gathering (see figure below). It is the main gate of Seoul City, alias Amae Royal Gate. In the Ryukyu Kingdom era, it meant to welcome the emissary of the Chinese emperor or noble visitors. 3) Leak-carved doors (alias "Xia Jiao Men" (see figure below) In the Ryukyu Kingdom era, officials had to walk into the palace city under the sedan. 4) When I enter the leaky door, I look at the shadow station. It's a solar clock. According to legend, it was used in 1739, until 1879, when Fanzhi County was abandoned, the Sun Studio recorded the times of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The so-called abandoned Prefecture is that Japan invaded Ryukyu, forcibly moved the Ryukyu royal family to Japan, renamed Ryukyu Okinawa prefecture, and Shangtai, the last king of the Ryukyu kingdom, was forced to submit Seoul City to the Meiji government. 5) The staff in Seoul (security guards, etc.) wear the clothes of the Ryukyu Kingdom. (see below)
나하 시내에서 가까우며 렌트카로 가도 좋고 아니면 모노레일 타고 가셔도 좋습니다. 과거 왕국의 성을 돌아보면서 나하시 전경을 감상하실 수 있는 멋진 곳 입니다.
Seoul City is the only large-scale scenic spot in Naba City. It covers about one fifth of the area of the Forbidden City. Because my maid wants to stamp it, she made a serious turn inside, and spent half an hour of tea between locks, sharing less than two hours. It's better to take bus No. 1 or No. 14 from downtown Naha. Get off at "Seoul City Park" and walk for 2 minutes. If you get off by tram, it will take at least 15 minutes. It's too far. From the service center at the entrance of Seoul City, you can take the pamphlet of collecting stamps along the number, without detours. The pamphlet of collecting stamps is simplified, traditional, Japanese, English and Korean optional. Entering the inner hall needs to buy tickets, more than 800 people, I went in July, the outer hall is repaired, the inside is open as usual. In the inner hall, there is a tea house "between locks" with 310 pieces. The tea is quite delicate. It's sweet. There are waiters to add tea constantly. I'm a very ideal place to rest in the sun. During this time, there are waiters to introduce me. Although I can't understand Japanese, Haha will say something about stamping. This is absolutely crazy for children. Because two chapters are not easy to find, my daughter in order to gather 25 chapters, two big chapters, dragging me is a violent walk, unfortunately, that day a clear sky, ultraviolet radiation is very strong, give me sweat from every pore "explosion" out, but finally no white busy, stamped and then returned to the entrance service center, you can ask the staff to stamp a purple imperial seal. There is also a souvenir (see the last photo). My daughter is very interested in the "vermilion palace of Ryukyu" inside. It mainly introduces the history of Ryukyu for nearly 600 years. I can't wait to see it once when I get back to the hotel. Now I can basically recite it. Ha-ha, last word of warning, because the city of Shouli is built on a hill, there are many steps in it, and the road is not available. It's too flat. You must wear flat shoes.
The palace of the Ryukyu kingdom, like the humanities of children's shoes must be everywhere. The sense of history is not so thick, but it's so fresh and comfortable. Boarding Xitai overlooking, the whole hegemonic panoramic view. A group ticket of 660 yen can be purchased with a single-track one-day ticket. In the Duguan of Seoul, we collect stamp maps. Every place we collect stamps, we can exchange them for gifts. The price performance ratio of ordered lunch and black sugar ice cream in Duguan is quite high. It is recommended that
Naha, the capital of Okinawa County, is the site of the capital city of the ancient Ryukyu Kingdom. As early as the mid-14th century, it has been a trading port and is now the largest political, economic and cultural center of the Ryukyu Islands. Located on the west coast of southern Okinawa Island, near Naba Bay in the East China Sea. Population: 307,000 (1985). The area is 38 square kilometers. The city was established in 1921. The port can berth ten thousand tons of ships. Okinawa County's only gateway. Naba is the capital of Okinawa County. It has beautiful scenery. There are many colorful palm trees and areca nut trees, verdant Ryukyu pine, colorful flowers, blue sea and white clouds in the sky. It is a rare subtropical tourist area in Japan. The city has the residence of successive Ryukyu kings, the site of Seoul City, in which the gatekeeper is the symbol of Okinawa; the Chongyuan Temple, the national Temple of the Ryukyu Kingdom, whose stone gates are designated as national treasures; and the Lingyuan Temple, built in the 15th century.
Seoul can be the first stop to start a journey into Okinawa and live in Naha. Whichever light rail station enters, buy a ticket to the end (Seoul City Station). After getting off, follow the sign and walk for about 15 minutes. Before entering the scenic area, you can buy some water at Rosen Supermarket. When the sun is strong, you can take an umbrella to calm down and enjoy its history. There is not much commercial atmosphere in Japanese scenic spots, unlike some scenic spots in China, vendors, fraudsters, thieves, as well as shouting low-price teams, Cultural Revolution remnants, fart children groups, can take away half of your interest in an instant... After entering the scenic spot, the taste of green planting has reminded every visitor to appreciate history civilizationally! __________ Inside the ancient city wall, every sign uses Chinese, Japanese, British and Korean to tell you exactly what to do, which is very convenient to read. There is a small stamp in the stronghold. Tourists mark their sightseeing according to the map: stamp knocking. I went there at about 3:30 p.m., and there were not many people. Most of them were tourists from other provinces of Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Generally, they are family groups. There are three or four Japanese families. They speak in a low voice. The children, no matter how big or small, seem very educated. This is especially evident when they enter the hall in the back. There are also some Chinese individual travelers, who have family groups or young and old couples. Compared with other people, they are more relaxed and speak and act casually, reflecting the national character. After entering the ticket office square, there is a service center, also an open-air stage. Every two hours, there is a folk dance performance. After watching it, interested tourists sit on the chairs under the stage and wait. During the performance, the performers are very dedicated. On 35-degree high-temperature days, they still wear heavy makeup. On the side of the display screen, the content of the performance is expressed in Chinese, English and Korean languages. After buying the ticket, she was ready to go in for a visit. When the girl suddenly felt ill, I asked her to sleep in the seats in the lobby and refund the ticket. After I told the reason why the ticket was refunded, the lady at the ticket window wanted to inform the nurse here. The nurse was an aunt in the left office of the front door. She came out quickly with a kimono worker. When she came to the lobby, she took her temperature first, and then asked me to take her daughter to the clinic. Despite the language barrier, we use the simplest way to clean up the dirt that causes stomachache by drinking hot water and vomiting our daughter - ice cream. During this period, the nurse consoled her daughter and came to the information of the city hospital to advise me to go to the hospital if I feel any more discomfort. Eventually, her daughter gradually regained her spirits. The nurse suggested that she rest in the ward and let me visit Seoul. After all, everyone came. Let me just go on with my journey. The wife accompanies the child. The Imperial Palace in Seoul was small and destroyed by the fighting. The Japanese rebuilt it in a few years according to historical books and photographs. Following the route, I visited in turn, during which I scolded in English a legacy of the Cultural Revolution who took pictures in places that should not have been taken, and the fellow muttered away. Then I bought some souvenirs as a souvenir for the baby, and the nurse stayed with us until we were sent down the steps... Standing in the observation deck to take pictures, the beautiful scenery behind, and a group of tourists with Wanda logo chirping voice incompatible. When they finished, they quietly took a picture with their baby. It's six o'clock. Take a taxi back to the hotel.
Okinawa, once the Ryukyu kingdom, had a unique historical background - that is, the center of the Ryukyu Kingdom at that time was not only a political and diplomatic administrative priority, but also the imperial residence in Seoul City, which was greatly damaged during World War II. It is gratifying that in 1992, the renovation was completed and visitors to the park of the Ryukyu Kingdom opened to visit the park and passed through the ritual gates as Chinese tribute envoys did in the past. The grandeur of Ruiquan Gate arriving at the main hall of the Royal Palace full of bright scarlet colours has Chinese architectural characteristics, but the traditional Japanese architectural style shows that the Ryukyu kingdom is deeply influenced by China. If time permits, it is suggested to pay 820 yen to enter the main hall to visit the northern Hall of the southern palace of the royal palace between the deep locks of the Royal Palace and the northern palace of the Royal palace. The tea fun between the luxurious Imperial Palace lock and the Imperial Palace lock is not to be missed. It's worth 310 yen to sip jasmine fragrant slices and taste Wang Ju and Guozi fantasizing that they are crowded into the pilgrimage of the princess!
Another landmark scenic spot in Okinawa is also a must-visit place for tourists. It is known as the Ryukyu Kingdom's historical and cultural heritage. It is loved by tourists who love historical and cultural landscapes. It has convenient transportation. After taking the Naba monorail train to the terminal station, you can walk for 15 to 20 minutes according to the sign on the ground. Seoul City does not need tickets. It is very big and can be visited for a long time. To visit the main hall, you still need tickets. You can enjoy the team price of 660 yen on a single-track one-day ticket, which is not expensive. The so-called main hall is the palace of the former Ryukyu Kingdom. Here you can learn a lot about the history of Ryukyu. The former Ryukyu Kingdom and China had a lot of origins.
Very interesting place, the scenery is also very good. Tea is highly recommended. The price is not expensive either. There are dragon chairs in it. Seoul City really takes family and children to play together. It can be managed for a whole day in Seoul. It's very convenient to get there by car. (Please use Google Maps)
