Contents The actual exhibition was cancelled, however, it was turned into online YouTube guide tour videos and Webinar.  The two photographers, Uwai Sachiko (1934–2011) and Higa Yasuo (1938–2000) captured the spiritual world of the Ryukyu Arc. This exhibition is a joint project of Dr. Sachiyo Fujita-Round and the Yuasa Museum, made possible with the cooperation of the Mabuigumi Committee. It would have been the first exhibition juxtaposing Uwai and Higa’s work outside of Okinawa prefecture.
