MY HAWAII By Colin Sewake

I took a friend to the new Yuntanza Museum a week after it opened. The opening ceremony was held June 22 and the museum officially opened to the public the next day. General admission is ¥500 and only ¥200 for village residents. I had an annual passport made without any extra charges.

Yuntanza is the Ryukyuan name for Yomitan. The museum has three exhibition halls. Photography is allowed in most areas, except where signs are posted. Unfortunately, there are no English-language captions to explain each display, although an audio explanation is available. I didn’t use it, however.
