Shima Butaya

This is a popular restaurant to have some tasty shabu shabu made from domestic island ingredients. The meat used is from Agu pork, the native black pig of Okinawa. It's leaner than most pork brands but still has a super tasty umami taste, making it the perfect healthy choice for shabu shabu.

Courses will cost you between ¥3,000 to ¥5,000 per person. They have all you can drink options.

This is the Onna village location.


This Okinawan izakaya looks like a traditional house. It's the ideal place to unwind with friends in a super quaint atmosphere.

You can enjoy there the popular shabu shabu courses that feature Okinawan brand crimson pork, konw for its tenderness and rich taste. You can also try out a variety of delectable local foods, and you might be glad to know that the izakaya has over 40 kinds of Awamori spirits to choose from!

Izakaya Kumeya

This izakaya is located in central Naha, at a 7-minute walk from the prefectural office. For just ¥1,200, you can get a pretty large shabu shabu pot and a plate full of Agu pork slices and fresh crispy veggies. The order is good for one or two people.

You shouldn't leave this izakaya without trying some of their gourmet tofus. Their Jimami tofu (peanut tofu) is one of their signature dishes.


Jimanya is a particularly good spot for drinking all kinds of delicious Japanese alcools (shochu, sake, awamori), cocktails, and even wines for which they are very particular about.

They serve a shabu shabu that features a special kind of pineapple-fed pork from Okinawa. This pork is known for not having any unpleasant smell and being rather lean.


The shabu shabu courses range in price here from ¥3,100 to ¥5,000. With them, you not only get a copious amount of meat and fresh veggies, but also some delectable Okinawan side dishes. The courses all end with a dessert too.

Located in Onna village.
