Okinawan Languages - Myakufutsu, the language of Miyako Island

jts-logo.jpg Do you know about the languages of Okinawa? Check out this article for some interesting information about the different languages of Okinawa, which are different both from Japanese and from each other. We’ll be going to Miyako Island this October to check out their unique kind of Okinawan on the Naka’s Travel Hawaii United Okinawa Association Study Tour and Okinawa Naha Matsuri Tour from October 4th - October 15th 2012

We’ll also be visiting Ikema Island, which has a unique dialect all its own, even though it is just across the bridge from Miyako Island!
