Event

A huge event in Naha City centering around the Hari, a traditional Okinawan boat race held in prayer for maritime safety and bountiful catches across Okinawa and featuring dragon boats and fishing boats called sabani. Hari events are conducted all around Okinawa, but this is the biggest ones. In addition to school and company races, there are also musical and comedic performances, dance contests, sumo wrestling, and hari boat rides for visitors. Numerous stalls selling local dishes also pop up, and each year the event venue bustles with countless visitors.

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
