The Blessings of aTyphoon
The structure of a typhoon, which develops due to interaction between the tropical atmosphere and the ocean, as well as the connection between the Okinawan lifestyle and typhoons are introduced in this booth.
Typhoons have had a tremendous influence on our lifestyle. The vortex of a typhoon is clearly illustrated by a cross-sectional model of a whirling typhoon similar to images captured by the weather satellite Himawari. Okinawa's distinctive subtropical environment, lifestyle and culture are also introduced here.
