"Walk in a Ryukyu Village"

Right across from the Oceanic Culture Hall in Ocean Expo Park, this historical village depicts daily life as it was for people of the Ryukyu Kingdom from around the 17th and 18th Centuries. Visitors can see and touch the Utaki (sacred place), Ugamiga (sacred spring), and the house of worship. Located within the village, the Omoro Arboretum has 22 species of plants that are mentioned in the Omoroi Soshi, Okinawa's oldest anthology of folk songs. Those who are interested can also participate in folk dances and try playing the shamisen, a Japanese lute. The exhibit is free for all, and open for thirty minutes longer from March to November.
