ABOUT AWAMORI TOURISM
Production methods of distilled alcohol were introduced to Okinawa
through trade with nations in the South Pacific approximately 600 years ago.
Since then, the people of Okinawa have cherished
and nurtured Awamori, the local liquor.
Situated on the same latitude as Dubai and Miami,
Okinawa also enjoys a mild climate throughout the year,
with an average temperature of 75.2°F.
The magnificent seas that surround the islands
are filled with coral reefs,
the land is bursting with lush nature
that has been passed down the generations,
and the culture and local cuisine are rich and distinct.
Awamori Tourism is a concept for our visitors from overseas
to enjoy the variety of Awamori that have been cherished
in each of the regions across Okinawa,
accompanied by the history, culture, nature,
and the lives of the locals in these locations.
Join us on a journey to this beautiful island and
encounter our spirit, our Awamori.
Through collaboration of distilleries, hotels,
and food and beverage establishments from various locations,
we have come up with fantastic ways for
our visitors to enjoy Awamori even more.
Awamori has an enjoyable taste served simply
on the rocks or mixed with tonic,
but these Awamori Cocktails offer tastes
that you can only enjoy here, in Okinawa.
They include drinks made with fruit vinegar made in Okinawa and
blended to perfection with Awamori,
those with salts, fruits, and other natural blessings
from various islands, as well as local herbs.
We hope you’ll enjoy them in various settings
throughout your memorable trip in Okinawa.
