Traditional Shuri parade is prayer for peace | Japan Update

The ancient Ryukyu Kingdom comes alive for the day Sunday as the Shuri Castle Festival parade takes place on the castle grounds before spilling out onto nearby streets.

The parade begins at 12:50 p.m., starting with a ceremony in the heart of Shuri Castle, the Seiden, continuing outside the castle to the Kankaimon, Shureimon, Ikehata three-forked road, the old Okinawa Prefecture Museum, Shuri community center and Torihori crossroads.   The 2½ – hour festival parade is open to the public.
