This is a plan where you can play, learn, and have fun in Tomigusuku City, the "birthplace of Hari!"

You can enjoy Okinawan culture with an Okinawan dragon boat "Hari" boarding experience, Uji dye coloring experience, and a beach barbecue!

Haarii Riding Experience at the Birthplace of Haarii! Let's row together!

After hearing about the 600 year history of dragon boats in Okinawa, you will practice how to row on land then finally board the dragon boat. The rowers, helmsmen, and gong player work together to row the Hari boat. Finally we come to the main event, the rowing race! Which ship will win the race? Tomigusuku City is the only place to experience this physically active Okinawan cultural activity!

Make your own certificate to commemorate your Hari embarkation with the Uji Dyeing Experience!

The award certificates are dyed by boiling sugarcane (Uji) leaves, and the face of the dragon is colored in. An original award certificate that is one of a kind will be yours to keep as a memory of your voyage on the Hari.

Please enjoy the traditional beach BBQ of Okinawa after the experience!

You can savor a varied selection of meat, vegetables, and yakisoba noodles because this barbecue uses an iron plate, which is typical in Okinawa.
