Prayers for Peace from Okinawa to Ukraine

Where We Call Home

27m 00s
Broadcast on March 28, 2022 Available until March 28, 2023

This time, we visit Okinawa Prefecture to meet Ukraine-born Katarin Honma, whose soul was shaken by Russia's invasion of her homeland. An engineer who's recently begun baking bread with carrots that are broken or too misshapen to be sold as is, Katarin stays strong with the support of Okinawan people whose memories of World War II overlap with the situation in Ukraine. We also drop by Tokyo to speak with US-native Emily Balistrieri, who translates Japanese novels and manga to English for a major publisher.
