Fish Wall Near Ryukyu Mura, Okinawa

Ryukyu Mura – Ryukyu Village – is a theme park about the traditional culture in Okinawa. There are traditional residences in the village, with red tiles on the roof and stone walls around them to defend them against typhoons, and some workshops are also available for visitors. It is located in the north of Naha.

I noticed this wall nearby - it is quite long and depicts lots of species of fish, with their names in Japanese. (^_^)

    1. And their love for fish is fascinating. I noticed photos, drawings and symbols of fish quite everywhere. Apart from the many fish dishes, of courses.
