To many, Okinawa is one of Japan’s best vacation spots, with plenty of lush beaches and sites to visit. However, Okinawa also has a unique culture of its own that’s quite different from the rest of Japan, and that culture is on show for the Okinawa Festa in Singapore event, which will be held next Saturday, 15 October 2016, at MILLIAN Singapore.

The event is open to everyone, young and old, male and female, and it is presented by the Okinawa Prefectural Government.

For an afternoon, concert venue and nightclub MILLIAN will be transformed into a mini
Okinawa. Visitors can expect to taste some Okinawan cuisine along with the island’s signature
Orion Beer.
Okinawan ceramics, or ‘Yachimun’, will be on display alongside some of their local
glassware, also known as Ryukyu glass. Also on display will be Okinawan local apparel name
YOKANG, known for their use of traditional dyeing technique and vibrant colours.
OKINAWA FESTA will be graced with performances by home-grown Okinawan acts
RYUKYUDISKO and MONGOL800. The stage will be an interesting mishmash of RYUKYUDISKO’s
fusion of dance and traditional Okinawan music, and MONGOL800’s punk rock sound. Visitors
get the rare chance to catch them in an intimate setting at this one-time only concert.
