The Okinawa Performing Arts Federation sent a delegation of Ryukyuan dancers to the 2016 Chengdu International Sister Cities Youth Music Festival, which was held from July 29 to August 2 at Chengdu City of Sichuan, China. Okinawan traditional performing arts were developed during the Ryukyu Kingdom era to entertain guests from China. Once again, Okinawan performers have shared Okinawan culture with China. They also deepened ties with performers from other countries. Photographs show scenes from the Festival.
