This colorful jewel-like island fruit is grown in the Okinawa sunshine and sea breeze.
They are full of nutrients packed with vitamins that are essential to health and beauty.
The place where you can get an “Okinawa fruit parfait”, made with fruit that looks like it will give you energy just by looking at it, is “Brilliante Motobu Hills” in Motobu, Kunigami District, located in the nature-filled northern part of Okinawa.
I was told they’re jam-packed with fruit of beautiful hues and are assorted with 5 to 8 types of seasonal fruit.♪
In summer for example, there is mango, dragonfruit, pineapple, and more.
It’s exciting just to imagine it.
From the idea that they want you enjoy delicious Okinawa fruit, fruit masters identify the most delicious degree of ripeness, and original yogurt ice cream is used that maximizes the sweetness of the fruit.
Due to this simplicity, the flavors of the dish come alive.♪
The place where you can get such a fresh, specially-made parfait, “Brilliante Motobu Hills”, is located on the hilly slopes of a green-filled forest, and the beautiful ocean is spread out before you there.
A comfortable breeze blows, and you can hear the sound of the leaves, swaying with the sunshine filtering through the foliage of the trees, and the relaxing sound of the waves from the beautiful ocean…
You can spend the finest relaxation time here.
You can enjoy the view of the deep blue ocean from the terrace seats, and inside you can spend a little time settling down from adult life in the simple space of bare concrete.
Besides parfaits, you can also get desserts and drinks reminiscent of the tropical south.

We want a clean body to be healthy and beautiful from the inside out, right?♪
