Okinawa March Box - Experience Authentic Island Culture & Flavors
WOWBOX will be featuring a different city every month starting from February, and we are taking to you Okinawa for the March Box!
What comes to your mind when thinking of Okinawa? If you're not familiar with Okinawa, it consists of 113 islands in the Pacific Ocean, located in the southwest corner of Japan. From Tokyo, it takes about three hours by airplane to get to the capital, Naha, located on the main island. From there, it’s easy to take flights to the other islands in the area, or even access them by ferry.
The most famous Okinawa local ingredients such as Black Sugar, Beni imo (red potato), Sea Salt, and Tropical Fruits. Not sure how they taste like? We have included all of these iconic Okinawan flavors in our March Box so you can experience yourself!
We will be introducing all the local flavors starting from February, but for now, we are going to introduce a globally famous omiyage snack brand to give you a sneak peek of what's coming into the box.
Okashi Goten - Beni imo Red Potato Tart
If you have been to Okinawa, then you must have seen this treat all over the local souvenir shops. Their storefront looks like a palace which reflects their name 'Goten' meaning palace in Japanese to give it a fun vibe.
Established in 1979, they have been the top brand specializing in beni imo red potato tart, and won the highest honorary award in National Confectionery Expo.
This original red potato tart is baked without using preservatives or coloring, and has been the winner of the Monde Selection Gold Award for the sixth consecutive year!
An exquisite combination of a paste made from 100% red potatoes from Okinawa. The boat-shaped tart is packed with the infamous beni imo red potato. The dense red potato puree and the crispy tart compliment each other like a harmonious duo with the elegant sweetness. No wonder it's the most popular souvenir snack every traveler will bring home when they come to Okinawa.
Aside from the red potato tart, you can experience all the delicious treats made from Okinawa local ingredients in our Tabi March Box: Okinawa Island Flavor by Feb 28.
