Restaurants

Kume Island has a lot of great eating establishments with a mix of influences. There are so many it will take us a while to cover them all and get you the details you'll want, but wherever you go, you're bound to get good food. There are many good restaurants that I havent had time to include on this page, including pop ups during peak season.
