Okinawan Tombs

The traditional Okinawan tombs have different types of designs as shown in the pictures below. These tombs are associated with the indigenous ancestor worship religion of the Ryūkyū culture.

In past generations, the Tichikayā, practitioners of Ti, used to train in secret during the night at the entrance of the tombs of their masters. Regardless of the type of the tomb design, the hall or garden at the entrance of each tomb was called . This term was later adopted by the Tichikayā to refer to a training area, or the training spaced used for Kakie, Iri Kumi, machiwara, or other types of training.
