Okinawa - Post Report Question and Answers

Is it easy to make friends with locals here? Are there any prejudices or any ethnic groups who might feel uncomfortable here?

Language is the main barrier. I did not have any issues and met lots of local people because my kids went to Japanese public school, local karate with Japanese kids, and I volunteered at the school. I have a biological kid who is white and an adopted daughter who is a pacific islander and we did not experience any issues at all. We felt very welcome. - Jul 2021
