Two cousins embark on a mission to research the music and culture of the motherland: Okinawa Island, Japan. One a recent high-school graduate in search of like-minded Okinawan indie rockers, one a not-so-recent college graduate in search of the native cultural roots of those modern musicians. Both looking for a way to not enter the workforce for three more months.

Glad you found us! Our moms (Allan’s too) lived on Okinawa for 18 years growing up, so it’s always been this fantasy land of family legend to me. It’s so great to finally see it for myself.

Thank you for sharing this! I’m applying to the Study and Intern program this summer through ETIO and I’m glad I stumbled upon this 🙂

P.S. As a Sacramento native, a care package from Freeport Bakery can only mean your parents love you very much!
