The Okinawa Karate Information Center has started a website in multiple languages.

The center was set up in the Okinawa Karate Hall in Tomigusuku City to make it known both at home and abroad that Okinawa is the birthplace of Karate, and to facilitate hosting karate enthusiasts.

In addition to promoting Okinawan Karate and responding to inquiries, the center will coordinate arrangements for both domestic and foreign karate practitioners to train at dojos (training halls) around the prefecture.

The center was set up by the Okinawa Traditional Karatedo Promotion Association and commissioned by the Okinawa Prefectural Government.

The prefectural government is planning to promote karate as a new tourism drawcard. The center will become one of the core promoters of karate to domestic and foreign people.

In late July, the center set up a website in multiple languages.

Inquiries can be made by telephone, email and the website.

The website is currently available in Japanese and English, and in the near future French and Spanish versions will be added.

According to the prefectural government, the center received nearly 20 requests from karate lovers in many countries such as India, Austria, Brazil, Spain and others, between May and June.

The center introduced them to local dojos.
