Just a 20-minute drive from Naha Airport, the Itoman Hare is held at Itoman Fishing Port in Itoman City, in the south of Okinawa’s main island. The fishing industry in Itoman City has thrived since long ago, and during this traditional event, participants race in small fishing boats known as “sabani,” which were once used for fishing. The highlight of the event is the “kunnukase,” or the capsize race, an event unique to this fishing town which tests the skills of participants as sailors.
