Home of the Peaceful Illumination Festival and more fun for the family!

Itoman, in the south of Naha, saw heavy fighting during World War II. Today, amongst other things, it’s home to the Itoman Tourist Farm. This is a working winery and farm, with plenty to do for families. For a mere 600 yen each, you have full access to all the facilities. There are tractor rides, pony rides, a petting zoo, a small tropical garden, goats, horses, zebra and buffalo. There’s a restaurant, gift shop and bathroom facilities too, as well as plenty of parking. Kids especially will love the pony rides, and the opportunity to get up close to animals you don’t encounter every day (like the zebra and buffalo). The grounds are pretty and peaceful, a great example of local commerce.

The gift shop is well stocked, and you can try a little wine too if you aren’t the designated driver (or underage!), purchase typical Okinawan gifts (beniimo candy and Shisa dogs), as well as items specific to the farm (the plush Capybaras are super cute). The place is clean, tidy and the animals seem relaxed and in good health. Staff speak fairly good English, are helpful and friendly.

Once a year, around Christmas time, it hosts the Itoman Peaceful Illuminations, a Christmas light display consisting of 1.3 million lights, representing Okinawa’s modern population. Not only are they a festive treat (there are also laser shows, music, dancing and festival foods and entertainment), they represent the wishes of peace the local people have for the world. It’s certainly worth a look when the holiday season returns. Overall, Itoman Tourist Farm is a great choice if you need to wear the kids out!
