Enjoy Okinawa time "Yuntaku" in the living space of islanders. You can spend a few hours together at a private house on the island. Enjoy a relaxing time with the island's family while tasting the island's cuisine. "Yuntaku" means "talking" in the Okinawan dialect which is the way Okinawans spend their time while drinking tea and alcohol without worrying about time. Enjoy the leisurely conversations with grandfathers and grandmothers who have inherited the life of the island for a long time. If you help their cooking and surround the table together, the island will be your home! Each experience is different, depending on the host for example having a barbecue in the garden or a helping experience in the orchard, so please look forward to what kind of visit you will have on the day!
