    Hehe cheers for that.

    What's Okinawa like for tourists?

    (not linking beach babes with a tourist interest, though... )

    Default is for tourists, but at the same time not.

    What I see it as is a public newsletter on Okinawa.

    What's happening at the fair, at the kid's recital, at the public festivals.

    Sharing a view of their arts, of many sorts not just 'martial', of their recreation, and yes even the girls on the beach.

    Have you found the historical material on the invasion of Okinawa?

    In the USA it's the equivalent of a good regional/state public brodcasting station trying to really share the area the viewers live in.

    And it's on the net, where we can go and browse at anytime.

    Instead of reading about Okinawan Sumo, we can watch some matches (wish I was a lot younger, it looks like fun). And we can watch various Okinawan's performing and demonstrating karate from their perspective.

    Nothing of it is fully inclusive. In karate the've been taking a movie on Matsubayshi offshoot Kashiba juku and breaking the movie down into smaller pieces, but it's detail you rarely see, whether you practice that version or not.

    Most of us cannot travel there, but I really think this site shares Okinawa better than anyway I've seen.

    Now bring on some Okinawan Rock - I'm not sure if it's still on there but I really like the Band "Stinky Hole".. proving where my tastes lie I guess.

    Then again..
