A sweet Okinawan treat
At Yanbaru Gelato, visitors can cool off with gelato produced by the award-winning artisan, Taizo Shibano. These sweet treats are made with local ingredients, like purple sweet potatoes from Ie Island, and mangos and shikuwasa citrus from Katsuyama. They also offer premium soft serve made with dairy from the local Miyahira Dairy Farm.
For those who want some fun in the sun after shopping, pay a visit to nearby Orion Eco Chura Sun Beach. Swim in Okinawa’s crystal clear waters, enjoy a beachside barbecue, or just rest and relax.
IIAS is served by a shuttle bus that runs from Naha Airport, which means it’s a super convenient place to stop for some last minute fun and souvenir shopping before your flight.
