Uchina Stay Report vol.11: “Time slip in the Sanzan period ~ Gosamaru’s castle and pine trees ~”

It’s been almost a year since I moved to Okinawa. It reminds me of the wind that was blowing a year ago and the cold air that is heading for winter.

“Can we do it in Okinawa?”

“What is the difference between the people of Okinawa and me?”

At first, I lived with such anxiety and curiosity. However, as I interacted with various people, my anxiety gradually disappeared.

It was encouraging that “people of various nationalities and Japanese people other than Okinawa live in Okinawa”.

One of the major reasons is that it was known that “Okinawa had a history of interaction with various different cultures.”
