Urasoe City: From

Urasoe City is located in the southern half of the Okinawa main island. Though it seems overshadowed by its neighboring city, Naha, which is the prefectural capital of Okinawa, back in the old days Urasoe was an important region politically during the Ryukyu era. At one time, kings took residence at Urasoe Castle between the years 1200 ~ 1400. This was long before Shuri became the capital city of the

Ryukyu islands. To this day, the people of Urasoe are proud of their community and long treasured history.

Before Sho Hashi, the 2nd King of the Ryukyu Kingdom, consolidated the island as one politically ruled country, the main island was divided into three main regions. It is often said that Sho Hashi was the first king of the Ryukyu Kingdom. He was responsible for unifying the king-

dom, however, he had appointed his father, Sho Shisho, as the figurehead first king of the new country. These regions were referred to as “Hokuzan (northern region)”, “Chuuzan (middle region)”, and “Nanzan (southern region). Urasoe Castle was the capital of the Chuuzan region. The kings that ruled from there were King Shunten, King Eiso, and King Satto. King Eiso was called “Tedako” which means

“Son of the Sun” in the Okinawan dialect. Even today, Urasoe is called “The Town of Tedako”. King Shunten also had an interesting aura surrounding his background. Legend has it that King Shunten is the son of Minamotono Tametomo, who was a royal samurai from Japan. It was said that Tametomo had drifted to the Ryukyu’s where he would later meet a woman who would have his child. Tametomo eventually went

back to Japan, leaving Shunten and the mother behind. Both waited for Tametomo back at the cave where they took temporary residence. This cave is located in the now Makiminato District of Urasoe. It is widely believed that this name is a derivative of the words “Machi Minato”. In Japanese, this translates to “waiting” (machi) “port” (minato) perhaps giving reference to the long wait the mother and the future

Along this road was the Ahacha Bridge which was significant for traveling

The T. Premier League, The Japanese Professional Table Tennis League

The T. Premier League is a Japanese professional table tennis league. The season began in October 2018 and Okinawa’s own professional table tennis team, the Ryukyu Asteeda, will have their first home game on December 3rd (Mon.) at the Ginowan City Gym starting at 19:00.

Table Tennis is a worldwide popular sport, with most people having played it at least once in their lifetime. In Japan, table tennis recently became more popular with the rise of several Japanese table tennis players like Ai Fukuhara, Kasumi Ishikawa, Sayaka Hirano, and Mima Ito who won the Women’s Silver Medals at the London Olympic and the Bronze Medals at the Rio Olympic. On the men’s side, Jun Mizutani won the Silver Medal, as well as the men’s group, won the Bronze Medals at the Rio Olympics. These recent showings have given much attention to the sport of table tennis and more recently, to the T. Premier League.


The league debuted in 2018 with the season starting from October and ending in March. As of now, there are only 4 men’s teams and 4 women’s teams. Each team will face the other 3 times during a season, for a total of 21 games. They have home and away games, as well as what they call a “central game” which is at a neutral location to determine the season’s third place winner. Only the top 2 teams will face off at the end to determine that year’s champion.

When teams face off, they have to play 4 matches against each other; the first match consist of “Doubles” with 3 games, the second match is “Singles” with 5 games, the third match is “Singles” with 5 games, and the fourth and final match is again “Singles” with 5 games. If further games are required, then another sudden death round is added consisting of “Singles” for 1 game. The Ryukyu Asteeda was founded in 2013 in Oki-

nawa and joined the T. League in 2018. The name “Asteeda” is a combination of two words; “Asu” (‘tomorrow’ in Japanese)” and “Teeda” (meaning ‘sun’ in the Okinawan dialect [sometimes spelled “tida”]). Together, these words mean “Shine Tomorrow”, a metaphor giving reference to “giving power and glory to the Okinawa table tennis team”!

Horoscope Nov. 25th ~ Dec. 9th The mood this weekend and early next week is jovial and optimistic. Although nothing special may happen, there is certain warmth to be felt. You are likely to hear news concerning your work that at first may cause alarm, but after a while you will come to realize that those changes are for the better. You should take a positive attitude towards you future as you have nothing to worry about, and things are bound to get better.

Meeting friend could result in something special and very happy this weekend. The focus is now in your love life and romance. Maybe someone whom you have met through your work or among an informal gathering of friends is making your eyes shine. Put faith in your future but keep your antennas in alert position as many useful and valuable pieces of information are coming to your way, but you have to ready to grab them.

Pay special attention to your money. People tend to put demands very high when money is concerned, but most of those are unnecessary. When someone is pushing you with something you haven’gotten to accomplish, tell them that even Rome took more than one day to build. The impatience of others is after all a minor inconvenience as it’s mostly the happy go lucky attitude that trumps all others in this part of the world.


Love and money are the two matters that take your time over the next few days. They don’t necessarily intertwine with each other and could be completely separate issues. Getting together with friends could be more fun than you had expected. Maybe plans for future leisure travel are a part of the picture including completely new and exciting ideas. The main thing is that you have to make those gatherings happen.

You should pay special attention to your human relationships. The warmth you feel towards people who are the closest to your heart is best expressed through action. Maybe preparing a fine dinner would be a good idea or start planning a trip together to somewhere romantic. By openly and concretively showing how much you care is a very good way to even further strengthen the bonds that bind you together.

Your enthusiasm to prepare your home ready for the big parties over the yearend may be a little premature. There could be problems with all sorts of scheduling, or computers could be the problem. If you are planning a trip, you may have to change it. Check and recheck everything in the minutest of details, and make sure that every bill has been paid for in time. That would take out a lot of unknowns form your plans.

You are eager to tackle challenges of the future and that gets response from people around you. There are many people who want you to succeed, so you can put your trust on their help. But you also have to remember that no one can read your mind, so you have to open your mouth and ask for help when you need it. Just giving out some hints does not get you very far. Being straight and to the point does. Many people are now trying to get your attention, and sometimes to the extent that it begins to feel like a real burden. On the other hand, a close friend or relative who need your help now, would be very thankful for your support. However, someone is going o ask you something quite embarrassing, and you have to think carefully how you handle it. Maybe the safest route is to claim to be too busy.

This time you have to prepare for a change. Those changes are mostly happening at your work, and they may well mean more work for you. That’s why it’s very important that you pay attention to your health and wellbeing. When you are not at work try to spend as much time as possible with your family and friends, and find something to do that keeps work-related thoughts at bay and where they belong.

As you have been very busy lately, maybe something important has missed you attention. The same busy attitude may have caused your friends and colleagues to avoid communication with you. You have to makes sure that no matter how busy image you give out, people tell you what you need to know. Sure, nothing really serious has happened without your knowledge, but you have to find out for yourself.

You enthusiasm is contagious, and a source of inspiration to others. You can expect some quality time with your friends and family. Think, how often you give a helping hand to your neighbor or ask them to ay a visit. Do not postpone doing this all the way to the holidays. Some of them may be in need of a shot of excitement and encouraging right now. And the day when you need a pat on the back yourself could be near, too.

No matter how hard you try, you can’t please everybody. Try to find time to meet your friends but pay attention to your expenses. It is often more rewarding to get together in small group than make a major event. Smaller group also gives you more time to talk with everyone deeper, and its often a good way to come up with good ideas or evaluate what is going on. This weekend, don’t expect much romance.
