July 9, 2015 Shoichiro Yonamine of Ryukyu Shimpo reports from Hawaii
The Ryukyu Shimpo launched the Hawaii-Okinawa Press Photo exhibition at Hawaii Okinawa Centre in Oahu Island on July 8. The exhibition was held ahead of the Ryukyu Shimpo’s forum called “Kizuna Ichimadhin Future of Hawaii-Okinawa,” which marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of Hawaii-Okinawa sister-state relations.
About 40 photographs were on display, including those of the World Uchinanchu Festivals, mutual visits between Hawaii and Okinawa, portraits of first-generation Okinawan migrants, and other records relating to the Hawaii-Okinawa relationship.
Photographs of Okinawa taken in the 1960s and 1970s by Sadao Tomishima were also displayed at the exhibition.
