【Okinawa CLIP Movie】 Motobu Town Public Market

post : 2014.10.11 13:00

This is a public market in Motobu Town.  In Okinawa, we call a market “machiguwa.”

The Motobu Town Public Market is a traditional shopping area where they sell ocean-fresh seafood from the nearby ports and locally-grown vegetables.  Recently characteristic stores in many different styles have opened one after another, which makes the market even more interesting.

“Motobu Machiguwa” is like a different spatial dimension with a retro flavor of Showa period (mid-20th century), where Yanbaru* time goes by so slowly.

*Yanbaru: the northern mountainous region of Okinawa Island
