Thank you very much for the bouquet of flowers.

I am a karate enthusiast, and I feel that I must give back to karate through my activities, so I have been involved in exchanges with the Okinawa Prefectural Federation Headquarters and overseas.

I feel responsible for receiving the Distinguished Service Award from Okinawa Prefecture this year, but I am also very happy that the Tokyo Olympics were successfully completed and that we have been able to promote Okinawan karate to the world through the various competitions held in Okinawa.

I am very pleased to be welcomed by you all here today. Thank you very much.

I am Masayuki Takara, Aza Oroku 1st group, Agarimeuhuyaguwa, and I have been the president since June 2021.

As the successor to former President Taro Takara, I am still a novice and have little ability, but I will do my best.

Despite the recent severe situation of the Corona disaster, the "Society of property administration of Aza Oroku" became a general incorporated foundation in March, 1991, with the cooperation of the directors, trustees, members, and many other related parties. Until now, the "Society of property administration of Aza Oroku" had been registered and managed by the owner of the land and building and the next owner.

With the incorporation, the "Society of property administration of Aza Oroku" has become a general incorporated foundation.

With the incorporation, everything will be transferred to the name of "General incorporated foundation Society of property administration of Aza Oroku" and there will be no need to change the name from now on and only one time cost will be incurred.

We will execute our operations in accordance with Article 3 "Purpose" and Article 4 "Five Businesses" of the Articles of Incorporation(*) of the association.

We will manage and operate the legacy and assets built up by the ancestors of the Aza Oroku, and make effective use of them to improve the welfare and friendship of the association and other organizations related to the Aza Oroku, and to lead to the development of the Aza Oroku.

And we will continue to work for the development of the Aza Oroku community.

For the development of Aza Oroku, we will cooperate with Aza Oroku related organizations and strive to develop human resources for the youth.

We will continue and develop the project of compiling historical books and cultural and traditional events such as tug-of-war and Umachi, which are currently suspended due to measures to prevent corona infection.

We are planning the "World Urukunchu and Tabarunchu Festival" as a project as part of Article 4 and 5 of the Articles of Incorporation.

The "World Uchinanchu Festival", which is held every five years as an Okinawa Prefecture project, will be held next year in October 2022.

Along with this, the "World Urukunchu and Tabarunchu Festival" is scheduled to be held.

We hope and pray that we will be able to welcome all of the Urukunchu and Tabarunchu who are active around the world and deepen and develop our ties through goodwill exchange.

I would like to work closely with Yukio Uehara, Vice President, Masaru Takara, Executive Director, and Midori Takara, General Affairs, and would like to ask for the support and cooperation of all of our members.

Aza Oroku Hawaii Hall

Before the war, many people moved to Hawaii from Aza Oroku. In the war of 1945, Okinawa became empty, and the people from Aza Oroku living in Hawaii must have been very worried about their parents, brothers, relatives and friends in Aza Oroku. For the reconstruction of the scorched earth of Oroku in 1952, a native of Hawaii's Aza Oroku received a large gift of 10,000 dollars to build a library at Oroku Elementary School and a community center in Oroku and Tabaru.

Later, Oroku Elementary School used the library as the teachers' room (Hawaii Hall) because the teachers' room was flooded every time there was a typhoon.

Later, it was decided that the teachers' room (Hawaii Hall) would be demolished in order to build a new school building, but I had informed both the Aza Oroku and Hawaii Oroku AzaJin Kai about the demolition.

Even now, a picture of the then teacher's room (Hawaii Hall) is displayed in the principal's office.

In addition, the community center of Aza Oroku was gradually deteriorated, and the ceiling boards were worn down and became unusable due to leaking due to deterioration of concrete, especially roofs and eaves. Therefore, in order to express our gratitude to the members of the Oroku Azajin Kai in Hawaii for a long time, and because we wanted to use it for the residents' association and so on, we made a major renovation by improving the water closet and sink in the building.

He named the hall "Aza Oroku Hawaii Kaikan" in order to express his gratitude and gratitude to the Oroku Azajin Kai in Hawaii. At present, the youth group of Aza Oroku uses it to repair the Hatagashira.

When the 50 year anniversary memorial project of Oroku Elementary School was carried out in 1997, "the Hawaii Memorial Hall Monument" called "Habatake" was built right next to the school gate. It was created with the aim of not forgetting to be thankful for the huge donations and relief goods that were given to us.

Umachi, which is held in June in the lunar calendar, is scheduled to be held on Friday, July 27, 2018.
