Kume Island has a wealth of fresh and delicious food with truly eclectic influences. Before fusion ever became popular in New York restaurants, Okinawa was a melting pot of Chinese and Japanese influences. Today is no different, with local food reflecting interesting and unique takes on Japanese, Okinawan, Chinese, and even some American dishes.
