Dancing to the Drums of Ryukyu

The folk dance of the historical Ryukyu kingdom, traditionally performed before the King & Queen, reenacted on a smaller scale.

Many photos have been included of the various steps hoping that seeing these in quick succession will also convey the depth of the drum beats and the loud whistling to which everyone danced.

    Actually I know very little about it – this was a very short trip – not long enough to find out enough. What little I read, came from Wikipedia.
