With the beginning of a new academic year, on April 5, high schools, colleges, technical schools and companies in Okinawa commenced induction courses at the National Okinawa Youth Friendship Center in Tokashiki.

A total of about 800 participants, including 131 students of Okinawa University are scheduled to be in Tokashiki until May 10. During the courses, the village’s normal population of around 700 will be swelled by the influx of students.
The students are scheduled to participate in two and three-day courses in which they will get to know their colleagues and teachers through outdoor and nature experiences, including marine sports.

Newly-enrolled students from high schools such as Konan, Haebaru and Okinawa Shogaku, Naha International and Tomigusuku Minami and the University of the Ryukyus and Okinawa Christian University, and new employees from Tomishiro Central Hospital will continue to visit the island through until the end of May. The ferry Tokashiki, a newly built ship owned and operated by the village, will carry a total of about 4000 participants from Naha Tomari Port.

On April 22, the island will open its beaches ahead of the tourist season.
