Kume Soseikai (General Incorporated Association)

A journey in search of Okinawa's roots.

Located in a difficult position between mainland Japan and the Asian Continent, the Ryukyu Kingdom absorbed various influences and built a unique culture while occasionally being buffeted by the times.

This culture has been passed down to today in the shape of Okinawa's traditions, dialect, and traditional events.
