Okinawan Cuisine

Situated on a small hill in Yaese Town, Shimajiri County, this restaurant features a red-brick design and offers local cuisine and sweets. The pure Ryukyu-style “karaya” tiled building is a registered Tangible Cultural Property. This restaurant has been repeatedly voted on sites such as “Hitosara” and “Tabelog” as having the “best lunch” and other distinctions. Their popular Okinawa soba uses a rich soup with a wonderfully light taste. There’s also “asa soba,” featuring noodles with sea lettuce kneaded into the flour, and “soy milk soba,” whose noodles contain soy milk. The dessert selection is impressive as well, with the “brown sugar zenzai (red bean sweet) with brown syrup and soybean flour” enjoying particular popularity. A wide selection of a la carte options is also available.

          Okinawa Main Areas


          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.
