    A tempura restaurant located across the bridge leading to Ojima Island in Nanjo City, Okinawa Prefecture. The restaurant's fluffy tempura is rich in flavor and has been made according to the same recipe since the establishment first opened its doors.

    Okinawa Pref. Nahashi Matsuo 2-9-9
    This confectionery has been around for over 60 years. Round rice cakes, butter cakes, and other traditional Okinawan sweets are on display outside the shop. The sata andagi (Okinawan sweet deep-fried bun) come in a variety of flavors, such as pineapple, caramel, purple yam, pumpkin, and banana, making them popular among both locals and foreigners. Their “brown sugar candy” is soft and preserves the original taste of the ingredients, which has made it a popular item for years and led to it constantly being sold out.

    2020年4月4日に行きました。2018年に続き2度目の投稿です。2019年の春にも買ってます。その時は1個60円でした。いつからか70円になったんですね。それでも1000円で14個買えます。シナモンとバナナと黒糖を買いました。いつもの味で美味しかったです。また買いに行きます。

A traditional fried confection of Okinawa, the sata andagi made and sold here is handmade. While being a simple confection made by frying dough made with flour, sugar, milk, and egg yolks, it is rather popular, selling out quickly, such that it is also referred to as ""phantom sata andagi."""

    The Yomitan store is the flagship store of Okashigoten, which makes confectionery using local Okinawan ingredients; the most famous Okashigoten product is their “Original Purple Sweet-Potato Sweets.” Located in Yomitan Village on land that used to be sugar-cane fields, the Yomitan store is easily recognized from the huge flower-covered hat at the entrance. Inside, the store has a wide range of confectionery products created at the company’s own factory, made using typically Okinawan ingredients such as purple sweet-potatoes and brown sugar; these can be purchased in quantities as small as a single sweet. Visitors can also view the production line at the factory next door. There is a restaurant and a café; the Hanagasa Café offers “Purple Sweet-Potato Sweets” fresh from the factory, which are not available anywhere else.

    This is the second outlet of okashi we went to. This is on the way from cape zampa to Maeda , and quite popular as it’s the outlet on the central island. But our favourite is still the one in Onna...

    At the end of New Paradise Street along the way to Kokusai-dori Street, you’ll come across this ball donut specialty shop. As the name implies, ball donuts are donuts in the shape of a ball, and they’re different from sata andagi (Okinawan deep-fried dough buns). Basic ball donuts are covered in sugar made from sugarcane, though varieties topped with lemon and natural sugar, salt and butter, and “Churakoibeni (a kind of sweet potato)” are also available, among others.

    We loved this small cafe with its signature ball donuts in many flavors but the signature will be lemon flavor. Worth a try

    Ippe coppe located in Urasoe, Okinawa Prefecture is a specialty bread shop using natural yeast. It is a lovely shop standing quietly in the foreigners’ residential district. Bread made only from selected ingredients and using only Japanese wheat is baked in limited quantities so it is recommended to get in early. The shop also sells rusks, scones, and in-house roasted coffee which goes well with the bread. During summer, the café Niwatori opens in the garden of the shop. You can enjoy a shaved ice covered with homemade syrup.

    Visit early before its sold out! Was actually already on a full stomach, but the aroma got me, so got a bagel and mini baguette to go. Delicious and mouth-watering!

The donuts sold here are made mainly from local ingredients, including bean curd (a by-product produced during the manufacturing of Okinawan-style tofu), soybean milk, brown sugar, etc., and the donuts are baked rather than fried. Around 10 different flavors are available, including plain, chocolate and coconut, and also Purple Yam flavor and Jiimami (peanut) flavor.

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
