In May, Okinawa is entering the rainy season a little earlier, but there are many fun events that will blow away such a jizzy mood. Therefore, this time, I would like to introduce four recommended events in May for those who want to fully enjoy the trip to Okinawa.

Every year from May 3 to May 5, "Naha Harley" is held at Naha Port New Port Wharf in Naha City. Harley is one of Okinawa's traditional event. It is held to pray for "bountiful catch" and "sea safety."
In Naha Harley, 32 rowers work together to row a boat with a total length of 14.5 meters and a weight of 2.5 tons. From students to adults, the figure of rowing the oars together is a masterpiece! Supporting nature and support is also important. The program includes the main wishes (Ugan) Barrie and Hon Barrie, Harley rowing against schools, and Harley rowing with a wide variety of teams, including women-only teams, American teams, and airline teams. There is.
In addition, there will be programs such as music live, comedy live, and Eisa folk dance. In addition, a stall will be opened in the venue, so your stomach is perfect. There are also stalls such as the standard goldfish scooping and darts games at festivals, so you can enjoy the summer festival a little earlier.
And at night, fireworks are fired from the sea to the music. Why don't you get drunk by the beautiful production of sound and light?
