We create and deliver exciting active events on Okinawa, the tropical islands of Japan and the birthplace of karate. We bring together locals and visitors in challenges that unite the spirit and bring to life the old Okinawan saying – “ichariba chodei” – “Once we meet we are family”.

At Challenge Okinawa! we also run a series of unique events that engage and challenge people across the globe. Our events are based in Okinawa but often extend onto the Web enabling you to take part even if you cannot get to Okinawa itself. We passionately believe in spreading the Okinawan spirit of hospitality and friendship to all of you wherever you may be.

Today Okinawa is a thriving multi-cultural place with amazing natural beauty and well developed infrastructure. An excellent location for international events with easy access from major travel hubs and a wide range of accommodation options. Yet it still retains a deep cultural heritage that inspires many to visit and discover for themselves. We look forward to welcoming you to Okinawa through our events and programmes. Please visit our Events pages to find out about upcoming events on Okinawa.
