Okinawa Japan photography group featuring unique pictures of Okinawa
Awamori (rice liquor) is the signature alcoholic beverage of Okinawa and most of the Ryukyu Islands. On Miyakojima Island you can have an opportunity to visit the local Awamori brewery and take a 20 minute tour. The tour will explain the unique process involved in making Awamori.
Brewers use a special `thrus` fungus which is unique to Okinawa. Through addition of water and yeast, the rice ferments and ripens and finally it is distilled. Awamori is produced without addition of any other substances and thus it is still ripening after being filled into bottles. Tours must be arranged in advance.
