Academic information
Shinjo Gima was born in 1557, at Kakinohana (currently, Naha Naval Port). He promoted advancement of industry in Okinawa, such as sweet potato cultivation that Noguni Sokan brought from China, as well as cotton weave, and sugar-refining. His tomb was originally located in Sumiyoshi-cho but was transferred to this site after the war as the original site was converted into a U.S. Naval port.
