Okinawa Kokuto, Inc. (株式会社 沖縄黒糖)
This brown sugar factory is located in Yomitan Village in Nakagami County and allows visitors to observe the process of turning sugar cane into brown sugar for free. The interior is barrier-free, so wheelchair users can move about with ease. Attached to the factory is a store that sells various brown sugar products. Ham, sausage, and other items produced in the prefecture are available for both sampling and purchase as well, and freshly made sata andagi (Okinawan sweet deep-fried bun) are available every day. Visitors can try their hand at making their own brown sugar, but advance reservations are required.

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.
