Experience Details
Head to stunning, subtropical Okinawa to experience the charm of life on an organic farm in Japan. Guided by an organic sugarcane and banana farmer, you’ll learn about the various farming tools and methods and try your hand at harvesting raw Okinawan sugarcane, from chopping the sugarcane to extracting its juices. This organic farm-to-table experience in Okinawa is hands-on and interactive! After harvesting and taking a bite of the sugarcane, you’ll squeeze it with a hand-operated press, and sample the 100% fresh juice. Finally, you can witness as condensed sugarcane juice is turned into brown sugar, and you’ll be able to take a bag of the delicious final product back as a souvenir! After the Okinawan sugarcane experience, you’ll tour the banana fields. Then, you’ll combine the two delicious Okinawan products to make a tasty dessert of caramelized banana with brown sugar and banana ice cream. This farm-to-table experience in Okinawa is perfect for families, tropical island lovers, and anybody with a sweet tooth. The farm tour is offered all year long, though the winter harvest of sugarcane is particularly sweet.
