On the morning of February 8, The 18th World Food Festival was held to foster the international exchange at Nago Civil Hall. Participants enjoyed home cuisines from 11 countries, including Ghana, Hawaii, India, and Morocco, which took part in the event for the first time, and Southeast Asian, South and Central American countries. There was an African drumming performance. Brazilian students sang their national anthem. Various shows added excitement to the festival.

At the opening ceremony, Nago Mayor Susumu Inamine made a speech, saying; “ Without going out of Okinawa, we can enjoy eating food from different countries. I was looking forward to the festival.”
