Abstract :Among archival manuscripts handed down by the Sho-the royal family of the Ryukyu Kingdom-there are six codices that include descriptions of rainmaking rites, such as Diary of the Prayer for Rain(『雨乞日記』). The six codices-the copies of administrative documents about the prayer-for-rain rites that the Ryukyu Kingdom conducted as a government-unveil the details of ritual procedures that had not been found in officially compiled historical documents on which previous studies based their investigations. Examining the Sho documents, this study attempts to add new understanding and information to the existent findings on the prayer-for-rain rites of the Ryukyu Kingdom.
