(Welcome)
 

Haisai! (Hello) Welcome to my web site dedicated to Okinawa.  Here you will find a wealth of information about the Okinawan people and their cultural arts.  This site is just one of many, that can tell you about the rich culture Okinawa and its people possess, however, to experience it first hand is a different story.  On September 5, 2004, my family and I spent the day at the 22nd Annual Okinawan Festival held in Honolulu, Hawaii at Kapiolani Park.  For me, reading about Okinawa's culture and actually experiencing it first hand culminated a greater understanding and appreciation.  Here is your first step towards learning about Okinawa.  Read on and find out how unique, and churasan (beautiful) Okinawa and its people are.  Enjoy my site and pictures as you tag along with me and my faimily at the 22nd Annual Okinawan Festival.
