August is a significant month on Okinawa because of the Obon festival. This festival is a time to honor and remember deceased ancestors, and it is celebrated across Okinawa with various events and activities. One of the most notable events is the Eisa parade, which takes place all over the island and features traditional Okinawan drumming and dancing. Eisa teams are organized by neighborhood associations, with senior members coaching the younger members. Participating in Eisa is a popular and important activity that teaches young people in the community about contribution and leadership.
When the drumbeat starts, neighbors from all over the block voluntarily gather along the street to show their support for their Eisa team. Eisa is a rope that ties people on the island together, regardless of age or background.
