Shuri Castle Park Mid-Autumn Celebration this weekend

Date Posted: 2011-09-09

The music and dance will be performed by Living National Treasures of Okinawa as Shuri Castle Park commemorates the Mid-Autumn Celebration Saturday and Sunday.

The events take place in the castle’s Una Forecourt. Admission is free as the castle park closes at 5 p.m. each of the two days. The festivities run 6:30 p.m. ~ 9 p.m. Solo musical performances will be by Masao Shimabukuro, Choichi Terukina and Tokutaro Shiroma, and dance will be by Noho Miyagi.

The visual effects of Shurijo Castle Park are spectacular, with visitors able to appreciate the grandeur of the illuminated Seiden State Hall from the festival location in the Una Forecourt. The view from the Western Observatory provides a spectacular and breathtaking evening view of Naha City’s lights.

Shurijo Castle is key to Okinawa’s history, a rich history recognized by the World Heritage organization under its Gusuku Sites and Related Properties of the Kingdom of Ryukyu. The recognition incorporates certified performers with superb mastery of the island kingdom’s intangible cultural heritage of Ryukyu dance and musical drama.
