Music & Dance in Okinawa




Okinawan culture is quite different from that of other prefectures in Japan. For example, Okinawa is known for its Ryukyu music, Ryukyu dance, Eisa-dance, and many other "only in Okinawa" traditions.

These traditions originated in the 14th from the Chinese through the trade transit. Okinawa brought about unique culture mixed with foreign and native cultures, and the newborn culture has been developed.
