Okinawa fresh products
I discovered passion fruits while traveling to the Seychelles when I was 6. On Bird island I ate my first one and immediately loved the juicy, sour, sweet, crunchy little fruit.
Back in France I've eaten passion fruits but nothing to compare with the one that haven't travel so long.
Japan islands span over such a long North-South axis that Okinawa offers delicious tropical fruits and it's only A a 2h-flight away from Tokyo. When we travelled to Ishigaki three years ago we fojnd several farms growing pineapple, passion fruits, mangoes, dragon fruits... That also offer to send to Tokyo anytime you want. It's a very nice manner to have super fresh fruits from Okinawa in Tokyo. The other way is to go to Ginza Okinawa's shop. (Each region of a Japan has a sort of antenna shop where you can by local products, most of them are located in Nihonbashi-Ginza area)
The shop sells Okinawaian products of all sort, and the visit was originally motivated by my husband needed some accessories and parts to repair his sanshin (Okinawa's traditional music instrument). And so it was a good opportunity to get some delicious fruits and in particular perfect passion fruits!! There is nothing as such to start a day than a little salad with pineapple, passion fruits and blueberries!
