  • Used bus access. It is about Okinawa lacquerware is near urasoe Sports Park, Museum of fine arts. Personally, unforgettable beauty of mother-of-Pearl inlay. And 200 yen admission fee is a permanent exhibition is recommended because it is inexpensive.

  • Urasoe, ginowan there, have visited many times, but for the first time visited urasoe City Museum. When I visited exhibition of the Kanazawa sho child it's had projected, but see few times in Tokyo and Fukushima, so I watch only the permanent exhibition. Exhibits and more than I thought and felt that Ryukyu Culture Center was near urasoe city.

  •  The octagonal cupola on top of the nine lined route No. 330 line bypass on the right side and heading to the North of Naha, urasoe City Museum building enters the eye. Ryukyu lacquer ware in 1990, opened as a public museum in Okinawa's first Art Museum. The cultural complex is called the culture Park, consists of an art gallery, library or Hall, corner. Permanent exhibits lacquer of the Japan's Ryukyu lacquerware a little different atmosphere. Made lacquerware in Ryukyu from the late 1400. As trade with China made in the Edo era and got many made as a tribute to the shogunate, and trade goods. High humidity is required for drying the Ryukyu high humidity seems to be one of the elements that require special equipment has developed the lacquer. Collection of Ryukyu lacquerware in 1983 was scattered throughout mainland Japan in the urasoe City Center "Ryukyu lacquerware art" exhibition was held. Grumbles that seek opportunities to Okinawa in the Ryukyu lacquerware Museum's Museum was made in about seven years. There are some great works in the Tokugawa Art Museum in Nagoya, presented to the Owari Tokugawa family from the Ryukyu Kingdom, seen together it was just here. You can know the history of Ryukyu lacquerware, techniques and features, as well as watch movies.
