As described in the last two Samurai Archives podcasts (and the next one), I had the privilege this past February of presenting at a symposium held at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, on the subject of Parades & Processions in Early Modern Japan. Other presenters included Gregory Smits, Kurushima Hiroshi, and Yokoyama Manabu, some of the top scholars on early modern Ryukyu.

The presentations (incl. powerpoints, and video) have now been made available online: http://guides.library.manoa.hawaii.edu/edoparades/symposium_papers

My apologies to toot my own horn, but in case anyone is interested, here's a blog post I wrote about it, and my photos of the small gallery exhibit I co-curated, in conjunction with the symposium.

Much thanks to LtDomer for reminding me / pushing me to post about it. Smile

Thanks for the update. It's very welcome to see so much about Ryukyu included.

Was there much, if any, discussion about the Ryukyu House in Fuzhou? I gather that the site is currently host to a museum in the city (though I may be mistaken on that, not least since I can't seem to find a website for it); but I'm not sure if any of the buildings themsleves date from the Ming or Qing eras, or if they are reproductions akin to those at Shuri Castle.

EDIT: Google Translate throws up a few details about "Rouyuan Station" when used on this page; but I'm sure that someone more familiar with Chinese might be better able to pore through the article in question.

There was not, I'm afraid, though the two Ryukyu-kan (one in Fuzhou, and one in Kagoshima) remain of great interest to me.

What little I have found so far, I have written up on an Samurai Archives Wiki article here.

I'm planning on doing some more serious research on the Kagoshima one, if not the Fuzhou one, in the near future, so, we'll see what we find.
