Here are five places that serve tasty breakfasts where you can start your day off Okinawan style.

This is a restaurant where you can eat outstanding cuisine made using miso from Tamanaha Miso Shoyu, which was established approximately 160 years ago during the Ryukyu Dynasty. The morning menu called Asa Misomeshi includes sets such as Grilled Salmon Miso Sauce Teishoku (860 JPY (incl. tax)) and Niku Miso Natto Teishoku (600 JPY (incl. tax)), and the relatively light Miso Butter Toast with Drink (500 JPY (incl. tax)).
