Exhibitions of national treasures and artifacts of the Ryukyu royal family

Naha City Museum of History Naha City Museum of History

From the time of the Ryukyu Kingdom to the present day, Naha has fostered a unique culture through its role as a base of trade and cooperation between various peoples.
The museum contains national treasures from the Sho Dynasty of the Ryukyu Kings as the main focus, used to highlight the culture that led to the dynasty and the history of the city. The warrior culture of the Ryukyu era is also examined to shed further light on the imperial (now prefectural) capital's history, with the goal of passing on this knowledge to future generations. Talks are also hosted at the gallery on historically significant artifacts, exhibitions, voices from the past, and the history of Naha. The museum also releases books on these subjects.
