Video – Bank of the Ryukyus to open main office, built during U.S. control of Okinawa, to the public prior to reconstruction

November 16, 2020 Ryukyu Shimpo


As part of the reconstruction of their headquarters in Kumoji, Naha, the Bank of the Ryukyus will be temporarily moving their main office and headquarters to the Naha Port Building in Higashimachi in December. The headquarters, which is scheduled to be torn down starting in January of 2021, was built in 1966, when the U.S. governed Okinawa prior to its reversion to Japan, and is a historical building that was filled with technology that was advanced for that time. Before the iconic building, which has been a part of the Kumoji neighborhood for over 50 years, disappears, the Bank of the Ryukyus opened their headquarters for private viewings starting November 14.
