Momoso Omono Mairi is a religious process which makes rounds to worship the sacred sites (Utaki) within the Shurijo Castle and its vicinity. At each Utaki, the priestesses pray for the long life of the king and prosperity of his heirs, as well as for safe sea voyages, safety of the kingdom, and rich harvests. Experience the depth of Ryukyu Kingdom's world of religion and Shurijo Castle at the Momoso Omono Mairi, where the outer environment of men (omote) and the inner world of women (uchi) are brought together.
