Try time-honored Okinawan fabric dyeing methods


Learn traditional Okinawan fabric dyeing at Shuri Ryusen, a shop located near Shuri Castle in Naha. Try the bingata method, which uses brightly colored, plant-based dyes, or coral dyeing, which uses dye made with coral fossils. Through this experience, you can create your own work of art while connecting with the history and culture of Okinawa.
