Behind the Cheese Guy in Okinawa, there's an amazing story of how John Davis, the British owner, fell in love with the Japanese food, and decided to flee the world and stay in Okinawa. And after doing that, he realised that the cuisine lacks a touch of fresh, home-made, soft cheese. And now, he makes the most delectable cheeses for all to savour. His shop sells so many types, right from cheddar to sakuna (cheese with the Japanese herb Sakuna), fuuchiba, port salut (a sort of French cheese) and ozato orange, to name a few, and John would happily tell you how every type came to be.
Imagine what it would be like to actually use the exotic and tropical seafood of Okinawa to make dinner… well, if it’s hard to picture all the fish and the unique island vegetables, come to the Makishi Public Market! Here you will rub elbows with locals who come to buy fresh produce and fish, and the famous Okinawa pork. While the market itself is on the first floor of the venue, if you go one floor up you can find many restaurants featuring these tropical comestibles!
Nago Pineapple Park teaches pineapple lovers about the life of the pineapple, from seedling to food product. A pineapple cart takes visitors through the pineapple fields and the tropical garden, and the store sells the freshest and most delicious pineapple products on the island, including a pineapple wine. Don't leave without trying the pineapple ice cream and taking a look at the pineapple charcoal. And, if you haven't gotten your fill, try some dishes at the restaurant. Those who can't carry their prizes home can use the store's shipping service.
