Excellent, authentic Okinawan dining experience.

This is an Okinawan style restaurant, many small buildings serving as dining rooms. You can sit at a table with chairs or on tatami mats. Opt for the latter for a genuine experience. We walked in to a dance and song performance by the staff. Very traditional and entertaining. The food here is... read more
