October, 8, 2014 Ryukyu Shimpo
On February 8, 2015, ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel Okinawa Harborview will for the first time sponsor a public Ryukyuan wedding.
At the public wedding, called “Ryu-kon in Kokusai Street & Tenbusu Naha,” a groom and bride will wear traditional Ryukyuan clothes and walk with their families from the Mutsumibashi intersection to the Naha Bunka Tenbusu Hall. The couple will perform a newlywed ceremony of Nudinuchaaji, in which the couple wears a piece of kimono, and a ceremony of Ubinadii, when water from Izumizaki is used for cleansing. After the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom will dance kachashii with their families and tourists around them.
The hotel will cover the cost of the wedding ceremony, outfits, and accessories. Applicants must be a couple over 20 years old that has not held a wedding ceremony. The hotel will call for applications from couples that want to hold a public wedding, until October 31, and it will contact one elected couple on November 2.
