    These are fantastic. Thank you for sharing them. I have grown fascinated with Okinawa over the last several years, and enjoyed the pleasure of getting to visit, however briefly, down there a few months ago. I hope to go back soon.

    It is wonderful that they continue to reenact such beautiful ancient traditions of the now defunct kingdom.
