Hyakuna Funjiro and Ishijishi

A Funjiro found in Hyakuna, in the Tamagusuku district in Nanjo city. It is a type of oven used for burning unneeded paper that had been written on. They were used in schools and other public institutions in the late 19th century It shows the Chinese cultural influence of placing importance on written words. However, with the passing of time, the number of these ovens decreased. Lovely stone Shishi lions can be spotted here and there within the Chuzan and Touyama settlements.
