Hi everyone! Where is your favorite city in Okinawa? I like Ginowan city because it is easy to access to Naha or Chatan. The both cites are good for shopping. However, there are only few shops to purchase Okinawa souvenirs for tourist, I guess.
The Great Select Shop ” D&DEPARTMENT OKINAWA “
I found a shop which sells unique Okinawa goods. The shop name is D&DEPARTMENT OKINAWA. *There is the shop information at the end. Some Okinawa items have been passed down through the long time, and some of them are new style. They also introduce and sell remarkable food and goods from everywhere of Japan.
If you prefer to wrap with gift-box, it is possible there. You could select by yourself, so it is a original souvenir. It would be a special one for your lovers.
I bought Okinawa sweet potato chips. We call it ” beni-imo ” (紅芋). It is not too much sweet, but you could enjoy the original flavor of it. Husband and wife provide that potato from a organic cultivation to a packaging by themselves in Yomitan. Yomitan is very famous as beni-imo. This chips are included their passion. I have never tried most of goods are there yet, so I will share with you which one is good souvenir for your lovers and yourself 🙂
