Okinawa soba is probably the most famous Okinawa cuisine among Japanese people. They use noodles that are similar to Chinese noodles, and generally, tonkotsu (pork) and bonito are used for soup. There are a lot of variations among each region in Okinawa. For toppings, spear ribs or pork meat is used along with green onions.

There are 4 different types of soba in Okinawa, including the most popular Okinawa soba, Miyako soba, Yaeyama/Ishigaki soba, and Daito soba. The most remarkable difference is their noodles.
