Shuri Castle Hill

About 155 years ago Commodore Perry passed by this exact spot on his way Shuri Castle. Today I was attempting to ride my bicycle up the same 6km hill without stopping.

I stopped twice. Once, to take a picture of the above gate that once served as the grand entrance to Sogenji Temple. Now it's an entrance to a inner-city park with some beautiful old trees. I also stopped to take a picture of these Japanese tourists having a rest.

While not my best time up the hill I was still pleased. Below is one of Shuri Castle's many gates. Lots of Western and Taiwanese tourists today. I love riding my bike up this hill. Before starting my diet I had to push my bike most of the way. Now, no problem.
