The 11th World Ikebana International - Okinawa Convention Center

Okinawa is a prefecture of Japan, consists with many islands. Before Japan annexed the Okinawa islands in 1879, it was a island nation, a kingdom called Ryukyu Kingdom with it palace structure very similar to China. Ryukyu kingdom had been paying tributary to China for several hundred years until Japan's annexation. It was the island endured most sever fight during WWII, before US invaded Japan.
My husband and I took a short trip to Taiwan after convention to visit our relatives and friends. From Okinawa to Taiwan only took an hour and half. Much closer than Japan to Taiwan.
Convention Center site at the Ginowan Harbour.
