Dear Overseas Kenjinkai President,

I hope this finds you well.

My name is Nakamura from the Okinawa Prefecture International Exchange Division, overseeing the Uchina Junior Study program. This e-mail is to notify you that the application period for overseas participants and youth leaders for the 2020 Uchina Junior Study has begun. The Uchina Junior Study program invites overseas youths of Okinawan descent to Okinawa to learn more about it while spending time with local students.

We encourage you to read through the attached Application Guidelines and offer recommendations for youths in your kenjinkai.  Note that overseas participants and overseas youth leaders differ in the following.  Overseas participants have never participated in Uchina Junior Study (or Junior Study Tour). Overseas youth leaders have participated in either the Uchina Junior Study or Junior Study Tour in the past.

Due to the Tokyo Olympics, the schedule greatly differs from past years. Please be aware that the deadline has also been scheduled earlier. If the attached files are corrupted, they may also be downloaded from Okinawa Prefecture’s website.
