Tomigusuku City residents want switch to Naha City

Date Posted: 2010-05-21

Claiming they feel more aligned with Naha City’s Uebaru area than Tomigusuku City, an assembly of 119 households are asking Tomigusuku officials to let them change residency to Naha.

The initial reaction to the citizens’ request has been negative by Tomigusuku officials. There are 146 households in the city’s Ganahagobaru area, and Tomigusuku’s reaction led Keiryu Heshiki to begin collecting residents’ signatures asking for the legal realignment. Starting with 74 household signatures, the number has climbed to 119, and promotion committee member Eiichi Kinjo says “we’ve been working to change our status and become part of Uebaru in an on-going land readjustment process.” The 146 households in the Ganahagobaru area are separated from the rest of Tomigusuku City by a cliff.

Residents have been asking for 30 years for permission to become part of Uebaru, noting that they do more community work together with the Naha City district than with Tomigusuku. The Naha City Uebaru area Land Readjustment Association is working on a plan to be submitted to both Naha and Tomigusuku Cities.
