Shinjuku Isetan will hold a Okinawa Festival, including many local foods and awamori, shochu made from Thai rice, from Wednesday, July 27th to Monday, August 1st. The event closes at 6 p.m. on the final day and is held on the 6th floor of the main building. This is a great opportunity to try Okinawan specialties like soki soba at an eat-in area, sample some awamori and speak to the distillers about their products, and stock up your pantry with the tart shikuwasa (great for cocktails) and kokuto (black sugar).
