3rd LooChoo Identity Conference March 17-19

Save the dates! March 17-19, 2017, for the 3rd LooChoo Identity Conference to be held on O`ahu, Hawai`i. This conference brings together Shimanchu from all over and all ages, to share, discuss and discover a deeper understanding of Ryukyuan Identity through lively presentations and discussions. Come and meet others who are looking to become more connected with their roots. 

This year, the conference will be joined by a talented and inspiring group of young students and leaders from Okinawaʻs Hands On group, who are working for the revitalization of Okinawan language and culture in Okinawa.

*Space is limited so register early!

*Those of you joining us from the neighbor islands, you may want to book early due to the Spring Break season. Ukwanshin has corporate accounts with Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air. We can assist you with both and offer extra discounts and free baggage, waived fees for your inter-island travel.
