Okinawa Day 2012 at Spitalfields Market

Some of you might have attended this before. There will be annual Okinawan event at Spitalfields Market this Saturday to celebrate unique Okinawan culture and promote relationship between Okinawa and the UK.

I think it is a good opportunity to experience Okinawa (the most southernwest islands in Japan) culture including live music and dance, Karate demonstration, Okinawan food and more. Importantly, it's admission free:))

I will be there as I am a member of the committee, it would be great if I can meet up with some of you at the event. If you can make it, please tell people at the infomation desk that you have been told about Okinawa Day by me via Meet up so that I can come up to you, then I might be able to show you around!

Here is the link!

Looking forward to seeing you on the day!

    Thank you very much for coming down today! Unfortunatelly, I could not meet any of you as I might have kept being busy whole day (Did anyone tell my name to staff at the info desk?). Meanwhile I guess some might see me in yellow happi at one of stalls and you might buy Okinawan snack from me :)) anyways, thank you all again and hope you had a great Okinawan time there. will see you in some point at other meet up events!!

    I went there but I did not have a chance to meet Mutsumi who is the author of the original post about this event. That was smaller than I expected but I enjoy Okinawa music as it is very nostalgic.

    Japan Nukes; National Demo in Japan

    On Sunday Japanese Nuclear reactors (THE ONES ON THE FAULT LINES- the one's that went so badly wrong) are set to be RESTARTED! It would be appropriate for us to show solidarity with Japan and to show how unpopular this decision is IN Japan- massive anti nuke demo in most major cities; set to be in the millions.
