Okinawa Day 2010 will be held at Spitalfields, London E1 on Saturday 26th June 2010 from 11:00-19:00. This is an admission free event and welcomes all visitors to enjoy the day in Spitalfields.
Okinawa Day 2010 will demonstrate the wide range of Okinawan culture through the performing arts (folk and classical songs accompanied by sanshin lute, drumming performance and eisa dance) and arts and crafts, food, tourism and so on. This event is strongly committed to promote ‘Ryukyu’ culture in the U.K in order to enhance the cultural understanding and relationship between the U.K and Okinawa. More importantly we would like to make Okinawa Day a sustainable event each year in order to encourage a U.K audience to participate in future ‘Ryukyu’ events and to create a ‘Ryukyu’ cultural hub in the U.K.
