Gift-giving is an important part of Japanese culture. Kumejima’s most famous omiyage are the miso cookies made at the Fukuya Miso Cookie Factory and Store.
Located on the main road from the airport just before the busy Torishima and Kanegusuku areas, the small factory produces cookies throughout the year.
The small cookies have a salty sweet taste with hints of the miso Kumejima is so prized for.
Inside the shop you’ll find miso cookies available for sale, along with other Kumejima gifts. Though the miso cookies are available at many places around the island, and even on the mainland of Okinawa, you’ll likely find Fukuya has the cheapest price.
