  • Japanese: 仕上世座 (shi nobo se za)

The shinoboseza was an office of the government of the Ryûkyû Kingdom. Headed by two shinoboseza ôyako (仕上世座大屋子), this office oversaw the collection and transport of goods to be sent to Kagoshima, or to be handed over to the zaiban bugyô (a Satsuma han official resident in Ryûkyû).

One of the two heads of the shinoboseza was selected from among the scholar-aristocracy of Shuri, and the other from that of Naha.
