Kumi Odori, the form of classical Okinawan drama, was created by Tamagusuku Chōkun three hundred years ago. Since then, Kumi Odori has been transformed from a courtly to a folk form, as the Kingdom of Ryukyu was abolished by the Meiji government of Japan. Thus, the “creative Kumi Odori”, which caters to mass demand, appeared. Ōshiro Tatsuhiro, the best-known writer on Okinawa, created more than twenty Kumi Odori dramas. Most of his works are based on historical themes, including the relationship between Japan and Ryukyu. This article aims to explore the historical views of Ōshiro Tatsuhiro and the creative features of his work via textual analysis of his Kumi Odori works.
Keywords: Kumi Odori, Ōshiro Tatsuhiro, The Tributary System, The Satsuma Invasion, The Disposition of Ryukyu
