On October 15, President Arturo Yara of Peru Okinawa Kenjinkai and board members visited Governor Takeshi Onaga at the Okinawa Prefectural Government to ask for his attendance at the 110th Peru immigration anniversary celebration ceremony next August. Governor Onaga received the invitation letter and replied, “Nife debiru (Thank you). I will try to attend.

President Yara said, “It has been 110 years since the first migration. I am happy that we still have a connection.

Third- and fourth-generation Okinawans from Peru who go to Okinawa for training come back to Peru with much energy.”
Governor Onaga said, “There is the 6th Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival after the 110th-anniversary ceremony coming up. I hope I can welcome our connection and enjoy next year’s ceremony as well as the festival.”
