Okinawa Festival in Yokosuka
Since both my girlfriend and I lived in Okinawa, we did not want to miss the Okinawa ‘IchaIcha’ festival at Yokosuka’s Mikasa park. There was lots of different Okinawan foods and drinks, stage events including a Hawaiian hula group dancing to Okinawan music, and an ‘Eisa’ battle. The Eisa battle was held during the hottest time of the day, and as long as the music is playing the drummers must keep dancing. It was nice to get back into the Okinawa spirit as everyone was dancing in front of the Mikasa after the battle was over.
