Hi! This is Suzuno from SAKURA HOSTEL ASAKUSA.
Do you know there is Okinawa Town in Tokyo??
It's in Daitabashi, just 4 stops from Shinjuku station by Keio Line.
Entrance of Okinawa shopping street ↓
There is Okinawan sake shop as well
You can find your favorite one ;)
By the way, Have you seen this one?
This is called "Shisa", a lion-shaped guardian angel commonly found in Okinawa.
Shisa is usually put on the roof or the gate of houses.
There are surprisingly male Shisa and female Shisa.
The one opens its mouth is male, and female closes.
You can find lots Okinawa restaurants too ：）
!! !! Another Shisa!!
Can you guess is it male one or female one???
Why don't you visit there when you have time?? (^^♪
Thank you for reading ★☆
