Okinawa World’s Best Kept Open Secret… Craft Beers

by Jun Ikemura

Next time you dine at the Okinawa World restaurant, try their four-glass beer set from any one of their draft beer selections.

Perhaps by now, many people living in Okinawa have heard of the theme park “Okinawa World” in Nanjo City. It is home of the famous underground limestone cave, known as “Gyokusendo Cave”. What many people may not realize though, is that the park also produces craft beers. The Nanto Shuzo (Brewery), a division of the Nanto Company which governs and operates Gyokusendo Cave and the Okinawa World theme park has been in the business of making craft beers since 2001. Nanto Shuzu is perhaps best known for the their “Habu Sake”.

For a long time, Nanto Shuzo was known for was its original “Nihe de Beer”. The name is a pun which is derived from the word “Nife-de-biru” which means “Thank you” in the Okinawan dialect. The beer would eventually go on to win international beer awards and became well-known throughout Okinawa. But in 2016, they gave the beer a new name and produced many different variations of it. Now it goes by the name “Okinawa Sango Beer”. The word “Sango” meaning coral.

It is said that since ancient times Gyokusendo Cave was formed from a mixture of coral and limestone combined with natural spring water. Seizing on this special natural ingredient, Nanto Shuzo used this water, with its abundance of minerals, to produce its beers, thus changing the name to Sango Beer.

The spring water which flows through Gyokusendo Cave is also part of the same stream that flows through Kakinohana

From Beer Lover to Beer Brewer

by Jun Ikemura Koza Bakushu craft beers, each uniquely named but all come with a great taste.

Koza Bakushu Brewery, located in the Koza District of Okinawa City, was built by love… love for beer! Yasuhiko Ohama, the owner of Koza Bakushu (Beer) Brewery, is what you might call, a beer enthusiast. He just loves to drink beer. It is his passion. He has taken that passion and decided to take it one step further - making more beer!

Mr. Ohama first started out as a liquor store owner. He would later go on to get his sommelier license. That is when he realized the potential of starting his own brewery. And so, he dedicated many hours of research into this new venture. What he came to realize was how deep and diverse the beer culture was around the world. Thus, he began to import many kinds of beers from all over the world, especially from Belgium, to sell at his liquor store.

His research further solidified his passion of starting his own brewery. He wanted to create something original, a sense of satisfaction of providing a taste found nowhere

else around the world. So, he diligently continued his endeavor. He went as far as to mainland, Japan to study various techniques in the beer making craft. Upon his return, he opened his own brewery and Japanese ‘izakaya-style’ family restaurant in the same building of his liquor shop, Tohyama liquor.

All in all, he has made 10 original craft beers, with some of his selections being served seasonally. You can try them at his restaurant, and you will know by their names, that they originated from Okinawa. Take for example, “Eisa IPA”, “Shiisaa Brown Ale”, “Sanshin Pale Ale”, “or the Kuro-obi (Karate belt) Stout”. Besides their great names, they come with a great taste! They also have a brand-new craft beer, named “Koza Lager” and will be featured at the BeerFes Okinawa 2018 at the Okinawa Times Building from July 27 to the 29th. Both his Koza Lager and Kuroobi Stout will be sold in bottles this summer and would make for great souvenirs for the family back in your hometown.

Mr. Ohama believes that locally-made craft beer, with its unique flavor, can attract people to his hometown. He hopes with a name like “Koza Lager” will help spread its popularity and put Koza on the map. For this very reason, Mr. Ohama enjoys going to craft beer festivals. He wants to help spread his unique taste and to spread the name Koza, a name which has deep roots with modern Okinawa culture. He hopes foreigners will try his craft beer and to take back with them a little special memory of Okinawa.

The Koza Bakushu Brewery is located of the 2F at 1-24-13 Chuo, Okinawa City, just a couple of minutes from Kadena Gate #2. It opens from 17:00~24:00 Tuesday through Saturday. Tel: 098-975-6119. The 1st floor of the building is his Tohyama Liquor Shop. There you will not only find a great selection of beer, but huge selection of wines as well. Find them on Facebook, search term “kozabrewingokinawa”.

Mr. Ohama, from beer lover to beer brewer, welcomes you to taste his best invention.


You can find the Mr. Ohama's Izakaya on the 2nd Floor, just above his Tohyama Liquor shop.

Making its mark in the world of beers, Ukishima Brewery invites everyone from around the world to try his selection of beers.

Brand New Brewery Opening Up in the Old Naha Market Area The Ukishima Brewing Company will have its grand opening on July 13th in Makishi, Naha City. It will be on the 3rd floor of the “Ichiba Hondouri” shopping arcade located near the Makishi Public Market. The location is ideal. Many of these shops within the center are still run by older Okinawans, and that’s what lures the people here; that nostalgic feeling of old Okinawa, a feeling you never want to let go.

The owner of Ukishima Brewing, Mitsuaki Yuri, and its factory manager, Kota Miyazato, were seniors and juniors, respectively, in college when they met. Years later, they would reunite and danced around the idea of forming a craft brewery company here in Okinawa. It would become their life’s dream. That was two years ago. Now, after months of hard work, their research in the business has paid off. After receiving their license, they formed the company and went hard to work in creating the best craft beer here on the island. Mr. Yuri and

Miyazato also wanted to establish a brewery in this little subdistrict of Ukishima in Makashi, which is part of a broader dream for the both of them. It is a way of giving back to the community. It’s their belief that great beer will attract many people to this small subdistrict and help light the atmosphere for more lively ambiance for visitors, as well for the local people.

As part of their drink line-up, Ukishima Brewing will be offering Golden Ale, Weizen and IPA to name a few. They will also have a food menu, which will change seasonally. For their grand opening, they will kick it off with delicacies from the country of Portugal, and you guessed it! From Okinawa!

The brewing company also wants to bring their craft beers to you. With the ability for a fast turn-around, they can produce a short volume (starting at a 150 litters) of their original beers for occasions like wed-

Horoscope Jul. 10th ~ Jul. 24th It is very important that you show as much flexibility as possible at this time. Keeping an open mind usually brings good results, and maybe you can find a new, different way to reach your goals. The same goes with your love life. You will get the best results when you let everything to take its time and proceed in their own pace.

Is one of your good friends perplexing you and even giving you a headache? Luckily the situation is starting to show signs of clearing up. Changes give you a good opportunity to clean the table, and your life is going to become easier as there will be less choices to be made. Someone is going to reveal a secret that could surprise you.

It’s impossible for you to impress everybody, and that is stressing you out. However, you should think whether you are putting too stringent demands on yourself. In order to find a good balance, you should plan ahead and delegate responsibility more. You could also postpone some tasks to next week when you have more time.

You have to postpone some of your plans because of your weak finances, and naturally that is getting under your skin. But sometimes you just have to be patient. Even if you are naturally quite creative, you can’t create money from nothing. Very likely you have to wait for the times to improve before making commitments.

You could encounter a complete surprise this weekend that could stop you dead on your tracks. It’s not the solution you are looking for, but rather an explanation. Maybe you should have known this in advance, or trust your intuition more. You have to admit to some facts in order to get ahead. At the end, it’s as simple as that.

Some people who cannot make up their minds are irritating you, but you should understand that there are more important and pressing things in your life you should pay more attention to. You should concentrate on changes coming to your way at your work. Relax this weekend in the company of people who are important to you.

It’s admirable that you want to help your friend who’s in a tight situation. However, you should think first what’s the best way for you to do something. Maybe another friend of yours has a plan that you haven’t thought about. You should not be bitter about this but learn. If you stay friendly, you can stay friends through the experience.

As you have now said good bye to one part of your life, there’s a change for better ahead. Maybe you don’t see it yet, but if you piece together your recent experiences, everything becomes clear little by little. Concentrate on building up your confidence, and use all of your skills and charms you can muster to move on.

You family and friends are voicing some demands on you. Some of them could be very minor, but it all still takes your time. You could also face a possibility to increase your income at your work. It could be in the form of a problem that others have no answer to. You should take charge, and resolve the situation as you have the means.


Your natural attractiveness is showing its power, and causes many people to seek your company. However, there is a certain relationship that requires someone else to help for it to work better. Someone is also missing a message you have tried to signal for some time. This weekend could bring the right answer to your dilemma.

You should try to help others at this time, even if you are not likely to gain much appreciation for it. Rewards will materialize later this year. Just now many people are concentrating on their own wellbeing, and have little time for anything else. Be alert at your work, so you can recognize coming changes before they affect you.

The next few days could be problematic from time to time, and unforeseen things could happen. There’s not much you can do to change the situation, except to be patient. In order to move ahead the way you want, you have to take the lead, and not wait for others to act. But this weekend, enjoy the company of your lover and relax.
