Today I am writing about an organic store in town called “anew”. I know two in Okinawa City. One is located very close to Kadena Gate 2 and the other one is located near Camp Butler. Please see below for the directions.
All the labels are written in Japanese, but I don’t think it’s hard to figure out what they are. I buy stuff like eggs, soy sauce, cooking rice wine, vinegar, Japanese mayonnaise, noodles, margarine, flowers, sugar, some vegetables, snacks, etc… at this store. There is not a wide variety and the price is a bit high, but all the products they sell are organic, so for the sake of health and safety sometimes I pay the price. It’s a cute little organic store. It’s no “Whole Foods” in the U.S., but it works for me. Do you know any other organic stores?
Speaking of organic food, have you been to Daikon no Hana?
Daikon no hana uses organic food. Their lunch buffet is 1,400 yen per person. Everything they serve is delicious and their dessert is awesome, too. They serve some Okinawa dishes, so if you are interested in trying Okinawa food, that’s a good place to go.
This review looks like I just wanted to add some more to my organic store entry here? Correct. Hope some of you thought that this was helpful.
anew near Kadena Gate 2: As you leave Gate 2, continue straight and cross 3 stoplights. After the 3rd traffic light there is a pedestrian’s stoplight. Take a left here. There is a sign for Monster Inc tatoo parlor at this junction. Pass one stoplight and the store will be on your left. Parking is available in the parking area next to the anew building.
anew near Camp Butler: After you leave Camp Butler, take a right at the T-junction to go toward 330. Take a left onto 330 towards Okinawa City. You will drive pass Plaza House Shopping Center on your right and still continue. You’ll come to a T-junction with Route 24, which is before a big pachinko parlor on your left. Take a left here and the store will be on your right soon after your turn. Parking is in front of the store, and it’s really tight.
