In Okinawa, autumn and winter are the peak season for industrial festivals. This kind of event offers a variety of industrial products including traditional local goods and processed foods produced by agricultural communities on the island, giving visitors an opportunity to enjoy shopping and dining together.
Some industrial festivals are more like an extended form of a farmers’ market. These festivals are a great opportunity to check out and also to purchase some of the newly released made-in-Okinawa merchandise, including a variety of natural and organic products and high-tech innovations.
