The city is well known for its coral reefs, emerald water and warm climate. Okinawa has a subtropical climate with 111 uninhabited islands and 49 inhabited islands.

Since the Ryukyu Kingdom in the 14th century, it has been more heavily influenced by Chinese culinary ways and techniques from. Pork is the cornerstone in any Okinawa cuisine. Other than the nose, Okinawans apply pretty much all other parts of the pig in their pork dishes, even the head! Commonly in a wedding menu, you can find an Okinawan style Sōki Soba with extra pork served along side the noodles. Less common but still firmly on the Okinawan menu is chimu shinji (pork-liver soup). Even the intestines are not overlooked, finding their way into a soup that is featured on wedding reception menus.
