    Okinawa Pref. Miyakojimashi Gusukube Sunagawa 975
    Maruyoshi Shokudo is a long-established Okinawan Soba noodles restaurant located on National Highway 390 in Sunagawa, Gusukube, Miyako-jima City (between the intersection of National Highway 390 and Prefectural Highway 190 and the intersection of National Highway 390 with the Prefectural Highway 201). The restaurant’s Okinawan Soba noodles, which combine a thick pork-based broth with a touch of garlic with noodles that are boiled to a firm consistency, have been popular on Miyako-jima for many years; the restaurant is also famous for the brown sugar ice-candy that is served after the noodles (in the case of small-sized portions of Miyako Soba noodles, only for children).

    We were lucky to be the last customers! And so lucky we could eat their number one soba dish! Meat is very tasty and portions are very reasonable. Mainly occupied by local! We got to try the ice...

    Okinawa Pref. Nahashi Omoromachi 4-9-11
    This restaurant specializes in Okinawa soba. Based on the concept of “harmony,” the soup is made using a painstaking process that takes two days, and it is full of the flavor of dried bonito and packed with savory flavor and richness. There are many types of soba available, including “hon-soki suba” (Okinawan soba with stewed pork spare ribs) and the meat-packed “kenpa suba.” There’s also a “children’s set” available on the side menu, which is perfect for families. As a special lunch promotion, whenever you order soba (with the exception of the mini soba), you can receive either “jushi” (Okinawan paella) or rice for free.

    Very good food at a reasonable price. The pork spare ribs were tender enough to pull off the bone with chopsticks. The rolls on the left side of the picture were open at the bottom and filled with a...

    Okinawa Miyakojima-shi Irabu Nagahama 251

    Its a bit different from another Miyako Soba, this is a IRABU island soba. Dried and fresh bonito in the soup broth is an unique, I thought. And the noodle here is a hand-made noodle.

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.
