Special Activities

eisa okinawa

In Schedule A, Sensei Ronnie & Akemi from Nix Karate Dojo will be invited to teach the Eisa dance.

Eisa is an ancient Okinawan traditional performing art, which is performed with large and small drums.

The children will learn Eisa with other Japanese children of the same age, and perform it in front of their parents at the closing ceremony on the last day of the camp.

We hope you will take this opportunity to experience this unique aspect of Japanese culture.
