Nangoku Café supports Hiyakamichi Project
This weekend’s Nangoku Café is a project launched to further develop the historically attractive public market in Naha, binding together three pillars of a school, a movie theater and a market.
The event Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. ~ 4 p.m. at the Nigiwai Hiroba, 2-7-1 Matsuo, Naha City, brings the culture and charm which Okinawa is famous for, letting the public rediscover lectures, events, film showings, etc.
Nangoku Cafe will be carried out as part of the section of the “market” which is one of the pillars of the plan. Every month, the marche or the market of various concepts are held. For example, the marche, which specialized in bread and baked confectionery was held in May, attracted a big crowd of visitors.
