Shuri Castle Restoration Support Miles

On October 31, 2019, an intense fire spread across Shuri Castle, a symbol of Okinawa's heritage, destroying the majority of the historic structure.

The JAL Group would like to send its sincere condolences during this difficult time and has announced the decision to offer its support toward the restoration efforts in rebuilding the structure.

We also ask for cooperation from JMB members to support the restoration of Shuri Castle through Charity Miles.
