Thank you for your continued support.

The "GlobalCommunity" has also entered its 13th year of publication with the theme of interaction between Japanese and foreign residents in Japan.

Going forward, we will continue to focus on issues that transcend ethnic groups, such as health, medical care, the environmental field, and cross-cultural exchange.

We will continue to make steady efforts without forgetting our original intentions, and we look forward to your continued support.

Corona has calmed down, and international students have begun to enter Japan, and I would like to continue to work energetically.

1: The "The 7th Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival" is very exciting after 50 years of Okinawa's return to the mainland.

It's not well known on the mainland, but it's a very international and heart-warming event where people from all over the world, like big families, who have roots in Okinawa gather together.
It's a chance once every five years, so I'll be an observer for three days from October 30th.

Okinawa Prefecture is one of the leading regions of outbound immigration in Japan, stretching back more than a century. Our ancestors crossed the sea, pioneered new lands in distant countries, and overcame difficulties through sheer hard work. While building a living foundation in each region and firmly rooting in the local cross-cultural society, their communities inherited Okinawa's unique traditional culture and identity. At the time of the last Festival, it was estimated that there were about 420,000 ethnic Okinawans living around the world.

The "World Uchinanchu Festival" honors the achievements of Okinawan people from all over the world, recognizes the great value of the community heritage of Okinawa, and seeks to expand and develop the Uchina network through exchanges with Okinawan citizens around the world. The purpose is to bring people together, reaffirm their roots and identity, and thereby be able to pass them on to the next generation.

The festival is sponsored by the Uchinanchu Festival Executive Committee of the world, which is organized by Okinawa Prefecture and related organizations and has been held approximately once every five years since the first festival in 1990 (Heisei 2). It has been held 6 times so far.
