Like other countries around the world, Japan is continuing its efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Japanese government is currently limiting travel, gatherings and encouraging citizens to stay at home. In addition, Okinawa Govenor Denny Tamaki has requested to refrain from all travel to Okinawa.

We stand as one to combat COVID-19. Our priority in Okinawa is to protect the health and safety of everyone. We send our love, prayers and support to everyone who is battling through this tough time. Through the darkest times comes the brightest light and we hope to welcome you all to Okinawa again sometime soon.
