Communicating the culinary culture of Okinawa to the world
Taste of Okinawa offers cooking experience programs in English for foreign visitors. The first stop is the “Ingredients Tour,” where participants take a tour around the various butchers and fishmongers stalls, etc., at Makishi Public Market. This is followed by a hands-on food preparation demonstration under the direction of the program instructor. The programs enable participants to learn about the ingredients and culinary dishes that underpin the long-life culture of Okinawa. The night-time restaurant also offers an extensive lineup of alcoholic beverages with numerous Okinawan craft beers, allowing diners to enjoy an authentic island drink with their meals.
