Ogimi Village Bashofu Hall


Bashofu is the oldest of all Okinawan fabrics, said to have originally been woven around the 13th century. Kijoka, Ogimi Village in the north of Okinawa has always been a major producer of Bashofu and is designated an important intangible national cultural heritage. The hall is a facility where young artists pursue training in the way of Bashofu, and is the only place in the prefecture to observe live Bashofu making.
