Okinawa Day at London Spitalfields June 2016

Published on : Saturday, May 14, 2016

Okinawa- kagira bay (5)Back at Spitalfields this June and ready for another jam-packed day filled with food, fun and folk dancing, Okinawa Sanshinkai group invites you to Okinawa Day to celebrate Okinawan culture in London.



Okinawa is a prefecture in southern Japan, and is comprised of a chain of hundreds of islands which stretch over 1,000 kilometres. Famed for its beautiful, honeymoon-worthy beaches, these tropical islands may not be the first thing which spring to mind when you think ‘Japan’, but perhaps they should be.Cheap domestic flights with airlines such as Jetstar and Peach allow you to fly from Tokyo to Okinawa for under 6000yen (£38) in less than three hours.

This event, which is set to take place between 10:00am and 18:00pm on 25th June, will be the 8th annual Okinawa Day to be held in London. Launched in 2009, Okinawa Sanshinkai group wanted to introduce Londoners and visitors to the city to the Okinawan culture and its distinct differences from mainland Japan. The day is designed to allow everyone to enjoy ‘Uta no Hi’ – a day of singing, music and dance, which brings joy to participants and allows the stresses and grinds of daily life to be well and truly left behind.
