Ryukyu Kingdom had flourished long before Edo era in Okinawa islands.

Under Toyotomi administration, Korenori Kamei from Shikano was permitted to invade Ryukyu Kingdom. However, it got called off when it became Edo era, and Shimazu clan in Satsuma got the permission and conquered Ryukyu islands instead.
