Native Okinawan Village and Omoro Botanical Garden

  1. Native Okinawan Village and Omoro Botanical Garden

Reproduction of the villages of Okinawa in the Ryukyu Kingdom period

Private houses and elevated granaries are reproduced within a traditional form of village that consists of sacred sites (Utaki), water wells (Ugamigah) and Kami-asagi.
It offers various events which allow visitors to become familiar with Okinawa from the old days including Sanshin and Kachahshii experiences and seasonal events.

Entering from the Central Gate is the closest. It is a 3 minute walk from the Haisai Plaza, located in front of the Oceanic Culture Museum.

In Okinawa, houses have been built to adapt to the subtropical oceanic climate.

A life style full of communication between people still remains in Okinawa today. The Native Okinawan Village catches a glimpse of the village where such people lived.

Within the compound is the “Omoro Botanical Garden” which features a collection of 22 types of plants which are native to Okinawa and appear in Okinawa’s oldest song collection “Omorosaushi”.
