The handling fees will be deducted from the proceeds of online payments such as credit card and PayPal.

We hope you join us in our mission to restore this world heritage and give us your support.

Many of the fine arts and artifacts from the Ryukyu Kingdom era were stored inside of the castle. The extent of the damage to those art pieces has not been reported yet. The assessment is expected to take time.

Expresar nuestro profundo pesar a todas las personas que se han visto afectadas ante los daños causados por el reciente incendio del Castillo de Shuri.

Debido al incedio producido durante la madrugada del 31 de Octubre del 2019 en el Castillo de Shuri, centro político y cultural de la época del reinado de Ryukyu, y un lugar que guarda el sentimiento de todo el pueblo okinawense, el edificio principal “Seiden”, y otros edificios aledaños como el “Nanden” y “Hokuden” del Castillo de Shuri, fueron completamente destruidos. Ante los grandes daños que sufrieros dichas edificaciones, en el Centro de Innovación y Estrategia de TI de Okinawa (en lo sucesivo denominado «ISCO»), nos planteamos la interrogante de cómo contribuir para la reconstrucción del Castillo de Shuri. Es así como se firmó un acuerdo de cooperación con el Gobierno de la Prefectura de Okinawa, dando inicio a la “Primera Recaudación de Fondos para la Restauración / Reconstrucción del Castillo de Shuri” a través del Crowdfunding Global dirigida principalmente a los extranjeros.

El presente proyecto consiste en recaudar fondos para la restauración y reconstrucción del Castillo de Shuri, haciendo un llamado de apoyo a gran escala, a través de la red de contactos con los que cuenta el Gobierno de la Prefectura de Okinawa e ISCO en el país y en el resto del mundo. Los fondos recaudados serán donados al Gobierno de la Prefectura de Okinawa, el cual lo destinará en su totalidad a la restauración y reconstrucción del Castillo de Shuri. Respecto a pagos en línea (tarjeta de crédito o Paypal) se donará el monto excluyendo las comisiones correspondientes.

Esperamos poder contar con el gentil apoyo de todos en consideración a Okinawa.
