The two venues for the six performances this year are near Kokusai Street that is popular among tourists from all over the world. Daiichi Hirata, the show’s general producer, says, “I would like as many tourists as possible to experience the performing arts of Okinawa. This year we have selected works that an audience can see, touch, and experience. I hope that many visitors would come to enjoy the performance.”
