Escape to Little Okinawa on the Ryukyuan Islands

This is a course where you’ll be able to enjoy Okinawa while staying in Yokohama. You’ll take a meal in Namamugiuogashi by noon and then head through by Kokudo Station on the Tsurumi Line, still with an atmosphere reminiscent of the Showa Era. After the opportunity to pay your respects at Sojiji Temple, you head through an area called “Little Okinawa”. Here, Okinawan cuisine restaurants and stores selling Okinawan products dot the Nakadori Shopping Street area.
