    今年の4月も利用しましたが、2022年4月上中のコロナ禍でのスタッフの対応が最低でした。 コロナで営業時間が変更されていたのですが、その事が駐車場の入り口には一切書かれておらずカフェの入り口に記載されていました。 スタッフに事情を説明したのに5分も停めていない駐車料金の返金すらなく、「ここでお待ちください」と言われた場所で1時間待ちました。 コロナ禍で密にならないようにとの事で誰も並ばないようにし...

There’s also dessert, with “Kibi soft cream,” which is topped with caramel sauce made from boiled sugarcane, enjoying particular popularity.

    国際通りから少し入った場所にお店があります。駐車場はありませんが付近にコインパーキングや時間貸し駐車場があるので不都合はありません。 フワフワで味の付いたカキ氷は他では中々味わうことができません。 過去に何度か利用した際にはプレーンのものを注文しましたが、今回は期間限定「森のくまさん」を注文しました。メープルシロップが幸せな気分にさせてくれました。

Okinawa Areas

around-area-map

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.
