November 18, the “Okinawa international cooperation and exchange festival 2017” was held at the JICA Okinawa International Center located in Maeda, Urasoe City. The ODKS participated with a booth introducing the activities of the ODKS and the OKIC and a demonstration.

  This festival introduces the activities of organizations involved with international cooperation and international exchange in Okinawa. It is also a window to the countries of the trainees currently training at JICA Okinawa. This year again, the most popular event was the cuisine corner with stalls where foreign cuisine could be enjoyed.

  Not only JICA trainees but also a lot of local citizens came to visit the ODKS booth established in the gymnasium, asking many questions on karate and the organization’s activities.
