Okinawan New Year has few events, change for luck

Although a great majority of Okinawan people spend the New Year among families and relatives in the privacy of their homes, various municipalities throughout the island organize several public events taking place through the New Year’s holidays. The events range from festive light shows to concerts and various cultural venues.Most department stores, shopping centers and larger supermarkets celebrate the first business day of the year with treating their first customers with sake and “mochi” rice cakes. Another essential part is the sale of “lucky bags,” bags that are sold at fixed prices but can contain goods sometimes valued at several times of the price tag.

One of the most popular public New Year festivals is the Mabuni Festival Of Fire And Bell that has been taking place annually since 1978. The highlight of the ceremony is the lighting of the 45-meter high peace monument as the people pray for peace for the coming year.

Following are listed some of the public events that happen through the holidays:


Through Jan 3 - Itoman Peace Illumination; 1.3 million light bulbs decorate the park, 18:00 - 22:00, Nishizaki Water Park in Itoman

Dec 31 - Count Down Festival For Peace 2002; Illusion by Princess Tenko, fireworks, laser show, live bands, Kachimba 1551, traditional art performance, new year ceremony etc. 18:00 - 8:00, Ginoza Beach Park, ¥1,000

Dec 31 - Mabuni Festival Of Fire And Bell; 20:00 - 1:30, Okinawa Peace Hall in Okinawa Peace Memorial Park, Itoman City.

Jan 1 - 3 - Shuri Castle New Year Banquet; recreation of New Year ceremony of Ryukyu Kingdom, classic dance, 9:00 - 17:00, Shuri Castle Park. The event features special New Year sake and traditional Ryukyu music shows.
