Other Food

Yukishio Saltworks on Miyako Island produces “snow salt” (salt in powder form) using salty groundwater pumped up from underground. Display panels explain the process of making the salt. There is a shop selling “snow salt” and products made using “snow salt.” The shop offers a number of unique products that can only be purchased here; the “Snow Salt Soft Ice-cream,” which is covered with “snow salt” in a variety of different flavors, is particularly popular.

          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.
