London Okinawa Day 2015

The annual Okinawa Day will be held on Saturday 20th June this year. Admission is free and the event will take place from 10:00~18:00 at Spitalfields, London E1. The event attracted 8,000 people last year. The organising committee’s aim is to introduce Okinawan culture further in the UK and enrich the existing relationship between the UK and Okinawa which has been established through previous Okinawa Day events.

The thriving London Okinawa Sanshinkai is also prominent in promoting the music side of things and will no doubt be showing off their skills again. This year it is hoped to include Ryukyu music and Eisa dance as well as performing arts workshops by individuals and groups from the UK and Okinawa. There will also be karate demonstrations and arts and crafts stalls from Okinawa plus food and drinks, including the inevitable awamori.

Further details are on the Okinawa Day 2015 website where there is also a video of some highlights from last year’s event:
