Welcome to the George Washington University Okinawa Collection.
GW Okinawa Collection builds on the existing collection in the the Japan Resource Center and features scholarly materials that explore Okinawa from the past to the present from multiple perspectives. Established in June 2015, the Okinawa Collection is a collaboration between the Okinawa Prefectural Government and GW Gelman Library. The Okinawa Collection focuses on US-Japan politics and policy, economics, and Okinawan culture including: literature, language and arts, plus the history of the Ryukyu Kingdom.
