Ryukyu no Kaze
Ryukyu no Kaze "Paikaji"(meaning "warm southerly winds" in the Okinawan dialect) located within the premises of Miyakojima Shigira Resort, is an open-air dining area with a distinctly Asian flavor. The high and elegant wooden ceilings will protect you from rain or sun while you savor a variety of Asian dishes, including the specialties of Miyakojima, in an open food-court style.
