The annual precipitation in the city is over 2,000 mm. The average temperature is about 22 degrees Celsius; even in February, the coldest month, the temperature seldom falls below 10 degrees Celsius. When the Bon festival of the lunar calendar, or the Old Bon, approaches, sounds of taiko drums, the Sanshin (three-stringed instrument), and the Parlanku drums are heard in various parts of the city.

Eisa, a form of folk dance, is a typical traditional event in Okinawa that takes place around the 15th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar.

In Okinawa City, aside from the famous Eisa, traditional performing arts such as "Ushideku" harvest dance, and lively "Okinawan folk songs" are flourishing.
