As we have done the past few years, we went up to Expo, in Motobu. They have a special (free!) program for New Year's.
It's pretty much a display of traditional Japanese and Okinawan culture. In addition to enjoying Okinawan music and the Lion Dance, you can pound mochi and make some traditional crafts (tops, shuttlecock, kites, drums)
The girls made puranku, a type of drum this year, since we made kites last year.
On the way up we stopped at our favorite Soba shop in Nago, Ufuya.
