Worldwide Uchina Network
More than any other prefecture, Okinawa is known for its citizens emigrating to other countries. There are estimated to be 420,000 Uchinanchu (Okinawan descendants) living overseas. On October 30th, World Uchinanchu Day is celebrated with the hope that the Uchina Network, that has grown over the years, spreads around the world and prospers. Every year around this anniversary, Okinawa themed programs take place around the world.
