Last Saturday was Okinawa Day in London and I was commissioned to photograph this annual culture and tourism promotional event sponsored  by the Okinawa Association UK. Okinawa is a 1,000 km long cluster of islands south of Japan’s main island also known for the controversial presence of US military bases there. It was a day of music, dance, art and food all in Okinawan style. A karate demonstration was also held as this martial art is considered to have begun in this archipelago.
