Village Schools had been set up for the education of children from noble families who would start school at 7 or 8 years of age and study reading, writing, Confucian thought, and more, until they were considered adults (at 14-15 years of age).
The Village School of Kanagusuku was reportedly established in 1835 and was called Kunmoukan. At the end of the kingdom, there were 136 students in the school. Government officials of Nakadori, and Hissha were at the school and they were in charge of controlling public morals and sanitation of the village.
After Ryukyu’s annexation (in 1879), the school was abolished. The land first became the village’s communal land and was eventually sold to a private owner.
