Let me hear you say AWWWWWWWW!


This year's Okinawa Day was great fun. Hiro and I snapped happy, stuffed our faces and even drank a good amount of awamori. The awamori was from Kumejima, so I got a little sentimental.

This year the kids stole the show. They were so cute and so happy and so enthusiastic.










Being a ha-fu of a much much older generation, it was a little bit of pure joy to see so many ha-fu kids running around. I wish that I was exposed to my Japanese side much more as I was growing up. Nevertheless, I must not complain, I am learning new things about Japanese culture everyday thanks to Hiro, Hari, my in laws and the rest of my extremely patient Japanese friends and family.

  1. I think we both looked like those little girls at that age! I always dressed up in my kimono for festival days when we lived in Tokyo.

  12. Hello! What a beautiful blog. I've never been to Okinawa but have heard it's beautiful. I love going to Japanese festivals abroad where you get to see lots of cute little hafu kids. Makes me feel right at home.
