Okinawa Tropical Fruits

Okinawa is the most southern prefecture of Japan, more than 600 kilometers from the main islands and a 2 hours flight from Tokyo.

Okinawa is a tropical paradise but we did not expect such a rich nature and, especially I, did not know about the incredible and delicious food you can taste in Okinawa.

My boyfriend was much more informed and he had already a list of things he wanted to taste, fruits were on top of the list.

Grapefruit
Taste: lovely, juicy and sweet. Couldn’t have enough!

Okinawa is also famous for its juicy pineapple and sweet mango. Don’t miss out!
