「History of Ryukyus and Satsuma in Technology Exchange」
YAMADA Kosei (Okinawa Prefecture Board of education)
In the pre-modern era, the Satsuma clan and the Ryukyu kingdom had complex and diverse relationships. There were active people and objects coming and going. Also, exchange of various technologies was done. For example, in the Ryukyu Kingdom doctors and cooks frequently undergo training in China and Satsuma clan. They returned home and got a position in the country. Contributing to the country using technology in various scenes. For that reason, in the Kingdom of the Ryukyus, we devised a person who introduced technology into a samurai.
Moreover, we used technology in various scenes to show the position of the Ryukyus. Satsuma clan also used technology to conduct diplomacy. We incorporated technology into our own culture. Training and diplomatic negotiations became opportunities for technology exchanges and had a major impact on the cultural formation in the region.
