Date Posted: 2008-07-25

The Kijimuna Festa, the International Festival Okinawa for Young Audiences 2008, is moving into its final weekend in Okinawa City, drawing thousands of participants from more than a dozen countries.

Sporting “For a Peaceful World with Children” as its theme, the Kijimuna Festa sponsored by Okinawa City has attracted performers from not only Japan and Okinawa, but Germany, Indonesia, France, Russia, Denmark, Serbia, Syria, England, Korea and China. The nine-day festival hosted by Mitsuko Toumon, Okinawa City’s mayor, was first created in 2005 to promote cultural exchange across borders of countries and languages. The Kijimuna Festa, which began July 19th, ends on Sunday.

Okinawa City each year invites performers, directors, producers and artists from around the world to participate. Events take place in the Civic Center, Ashibinaa Hall and Chuo Kaminkan. Performance schedules and reservations information is available at http://www.kijimuna.org.

Tickets for the final four days are still available at the Kijimuna Festival Office. Adult tickets are ¥2,000 in advance or ¥2,500 at the door. Youth tickets for ages 3~18 are ¥1,500 in advance or ¥2,000 at the door.
