Okinawan visitors to Portland Gear

On June 23, Hokusei North America hosted a business group from Japan’s Okinawa Prefecture.  The group was interested in learning more about Portland’s creative scene, including design, food & beverage, and fashion.  In the future, many of the Okinawan visitors hope to incorporate Portland elements into their retail stores’ design, product offerings, and menus.

As part of its support of trade between Japan and Oregon, Hokusei North America escorted the group to a number of Portland businesses, including restaurants, breweries, cideries and Hokusei’s apparel partner, Portland Gear.
