Kokusai St Eisa Festival

Filed under: — Andy @ 7:56 am

The day before Luong went back to LA there was a Eisa Festival on Kokusai St. There were supposedly over 10,000 performers. Eisa is the Okinawan version of the taiko drum and dancing. The festival was interesting and there were a lot of good groups, but the atmosphere was still a lot different than festivals in Tokyo. The culture overall is different in Okinawa, and even after 6 months of living here I am still getting used to it.
