Now that the heat of the summer has gone, a drive along the coast makes a great choice. The east coast of Okinawa has beautiful views, with less development than the West side. You can also find Cafe Kubama on this side of the island. In an unassuming white concrete building just past Ishikawa heading North is a hidden gem. What makes it really special are the views both from inside with large glass windows onto the sea or from the terrace outside.

The owner of the cafe, Higa-san often plays the piano for his guests, when he’s not playing he takes great care in the choice of music.

They have a variety of food choices, with specials including curry, pasta, pizza and cakes. We had a delicious spicy chicken curry with goya chips and raisins on the rice. They also serve Japanese green tea made in the traditional way by using powdered green tea mixed with a tea whisk.

Cafe Kubama makes a great choice if you’re in Kin or travelling North to just escape for an hour or two and watch the ocean while enjoying a drink or food. Prices range from 800-1200 yen for the set menu.
