Izumi Mikan no Sato (伊豆味 みかんの里)
This expansive mandarin orange producing region is located in Izumi District on northern Okinawa Island. The region, which is suited to growing citrus due to the large temperature difference between day and night, has many mandarin orange farms. The Mikan no Sato Information Center, which is open from October to February each year, provides visitors with information about local farms that offer mandarin orange picking. Visitors can also try picking citrus fruits characteristic of Okinawa such as shikuwasa, citrus tankan, and kabuchi. The information center's attached parlor sells desserts such as zenzai (sweet bean soup) with brown sugar in it and sata andagi (Okinawan donuts) with citrus tankan in them.

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.
