城紅型染工房に行ってきました。以前紅型のハンカチを頂いたのですが、あまり興味も無かったのですが、、たまたまこちらに立ち寄ることになり、その紅型の鮮やかな色に驚きました。沖縄の伝統工芸品なんですね。色々教えていただきその素晴らしさに気がつきました。

市内というより県内でも、こんなに美しい紅型をいくつも見られるところはそう多くないはずです。貴重な場所なのでオススメです。

沖縄で紅型は、首里が有名ですが、浦添にもあるんです。
太陽の強い光のおかげで紅型の色は、鮮やかさと情熱を持った
色彩で染められています。コチニールと言って独特の染料もあります。沖縄の伝統工芸品、素敵ですよ!

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
