You might notice up top that the name of the blog has been changed from Okinawa Homeschoolers to Okinawa Unschoolers. The reason behind this is we did not want to confuse ourselves with the Yahoo group of a similar name.

Our address, as you’ll notice, is the same. The kanji is the same. We are still open and receptive to homeschoolers of all backgrounds and learning styles (we’re not ‘unschooling elitists” or anything of that nature). We just didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes so we’ll avoid that before it has the chance to become an issue.

We got a comment! It’s from Tokyo which doesn’t lend well for getting together… but welcome anyway! Thank you for the support and encouraging words. We hope to get up there to mainland more than once while in the hemisphere. We’ll let you know and try to get all of the must-see-spots off the beaten path.

Before I go, the calendar section is up, but you’ll need a password to see where the group is going (security reasons) so drop us an email to join up and we can get you the appropriate access.
