Know before you go. No parking at the venue.

There is no parking at the venue! Do not park on the side of the road, residential areas, or on the sidewalk. Instead, take advantage of the abundance of parking at the following locations which will have shuttle buses to and from the venue:

  • Aeon Mall Okinawa Rycom 1F Arrival Gate (N 26.314954, E 127.796470)
  • Okinawa City Office (N 26.334372, E 127.805662)
  • Awase Fishing Port (N 26.322036, E 127.835374)


It’s time again for the Koza Motor Sport Festival at Okinawa City Koza Athletic Park on Nov. 9 and 10.

Just like last year, this festival will showcase various aspects of motor sports at the venue a short walk from Kadena Air Base.

Main features will include demonstrations of drift racing, extreme bikes (motorcycle stunt riding), racing go-karts, mini-bikes and radio-controlled cars.

Plus, there will be exhibitions of customized vehicles and opportunities to ride in the passenger seat of a two-seater go-kart driven by top drivers. The program will also include food vendors and stage performances as well.

Last year, the event drew over 42,000, so expect heavy traffic in the area and no parking. The event will have multiple shuttle buses from different venues, so check the locations before you head out. The venue is about a 10 to 20-minute walk from Kadena.

Gearheads, get ready because this is going to be a good one to check out!
