Made in Okinawa with Pride

















Made in Okinawa with Pride

With its mild climate, coral-fringed white sand beaches, friendly people and first class accommodations, Okinawa is fast becoming a popular resort destination. Still, ever the backdrop to these increasingly sophisticated resort trappings and spreading international customer base has been a particular pride exhibited by the local people. This pride comes from providing essential services, perpetuating the arts and culinary traditions, or integrating the classic with the modern to create something new. From legal and housing services to aged awamori to locally made clothing and accessories to some of the most delicious and unique places to eat, Okinawa's pride in workmanship shines through.
