3/三 from Okinawa

Scene-setter: Porte Magazine, the Kinfolk of Okinawa, but with a lot more POC’s, thankfully.

Pound-the-table recommendation: This restaurant, whatever its name may be. (Update! The English translation is Ameiro Shokudo. Read more about the super cute owners here.)

Back Pocket Fact: In 1884, Okinawan Yasutaro Tamagusuku (“Edison of Itoman”) invented mi-kagan, or swimming goggles, borne out of a desperate need from underwater net fishermen with deteriorating eyesight.

At the Okinawa Prefectural Museum, “diving.”
