Parts of Shuri Castle in Okinawa Prefecture will be reopened to the public for the first time Friday since a major fire last October.

Visitors will be able to enter the castle’s paid admission area through the Hoshinmon gate, which roughly translates as “gate to respect the gods,” and enter the Seiden main hall, which was among the structures burned down.
