Blue House Okinawa is an up and coming venue for a variety of events on island. I had the pleasure of taking a beginners Japanese class and meet plenty of amazing locals. This is the place to go to learn, have fun, and get some culture. Blue House has a variety of classes and schedules to choose from, which can be found on their website. The coordinator, Monika, is a real treat to get to know! She is so sweet, helpful, and speaks wonderful English.
It’s not just a school! They host parties, hold activities and events for Americans and Japanese to socialize, and in the summer they have an all-natural juice bar (delicious!). The house is located a block from the ocean on Sunabe Seawall and while in a quiet section of the neighborhood, it’s easy to walk to all of the other shops and restaurants in the area.
Editors Note: Blue House Okinawa offers both English and Japanese classes for all levels. Whether you are looking for a formal lesson plan, want to interact with different cultures, or even take advantage of their in house masseuse, please visit their website (below).
