Nakagusuku Industrial Festival promoting the village

Nakagusuku Village wants to grow, and is trying to get the word out to everyone on Okinawa that  its residents are talented and producing a lot of products used by everyone.

While advertising outside the village is often difficult, the village is using the 2012 Toyomu Nakagusuku Industrial Festival this weekend to promote its industries, expanding the volume of sales and creating a market outreach.  Industries within Nakagusuku Village want to grow, to better enhance residents’ lives, while producing, processing and selling goods through the exhibition.

Organizers say the festival will introduce a good many product performance exchanges, while allowing locals and visitors to engage in business talk.  The objective, of course, is to get new customers trying the village’s new products, and expanding the industrial base.

This year’s festival runs 1 p.m. ~ 8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. ~ 6 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot at Yoshinoura Hall.  Admission is free.  Four different exhibition and product sales areas will be set up; foods, handicrafts, agriculture, forestry and fishery, and commerce and industrial products.

Events will be taking place around the festival grounds throughout the day, and entertainment will be appearing on stage.

To get there from Camp Foster Legion Gate drive straight onto Route 81. At Toguchi intersection turn right onto 329. At the traffic light next JA gasoline stand on the left, turn left towards the ocean. The festival grounds are on the right a couple of blocks down the road.
