Principal photography took place in Oahu, Hawaii, in the northeastern area of the island known as the "windward side". The local countryside in modern-day Okinawa had been drastically changed due to the presence of military bases, so other locations in both Japan and Hawaii were scouted as alternative filming locations. Filmmakers selected a property in Oahu that was privately owned by a retired local physician who agreed to allow a portion of the land to be used in the film. To form the Okinawan village portrayed in the film, seven authentic replicas of Okinawan houses were constructed along with more than three acres of planted crops. Fifty Okinawa-born Hawaii residents were also recruited as film extras. See more »
While in Okinawa and Japan it is normal for the driver's side to be on the right side of the car for left lane travel, many left hand cars were transported to the island by members of the US military for personal use and subsequently left there. This is why Sato's personal car is left hand drive. See more »

Hey Mr. Miyagi, you know I've been thinking.
About what, Daniel-San?
That we should come up with some kind of strategy.
My future, my whole tournament career.
Miyagi already have one.

Daniel Larusso is back this time in Okinawa, Japan to visit Mr. Miyagi's home village, but upon arrival they discover it's being overrun by his old nemesis and his construction company. The climatic fight scene in the vintage karate ring was about as good as a sequel can get and wasn't relying on the first film for material. If you liked the first "KARATE KID", this one is almost as good, but please; do not see the 3rd sequel, it is Macchio's worst film ever.
