In the evening of January 19, around Gate Street in downtown Koza, eight men from inside and outside of Okinawa participated in a night tour called “American Story in Koza.” Guided by Takahiro Kina from the Koza Information Center, they went around restaurants and music venues, sampling the nightlife of Koza.

They enjoyed something to eat at American Pizzaman at Central Park Avenue before moving on to Gate Street. They pinned a U.S. dollar bill with their name on it on the ceiling in the oldest A-sign pub Prince on the street, enjoying a different culture. At the last spot on the tour, Club Queen, they took in a live performance by the Filipino band Prism.

One of the people on the tour said, “I haven’t had a chance to visit Koza before because it was not included in our school trip.” Another person hopes to come back with his family at some stage. Takahiro Iwasaki from Tokyo seemed happy to have discovered a new aspect of Okinawa.
