A port stop and a shore excursion turn out to be a lesson in wine culture!

A few phone photos of Okinawa  street culture first :

Pride in their own Identity is seen everywhere with prominent declarations of ‘Made in Okinawa’

At every restaurant on the main shopping road, chefs and hosts stand outside to lure you in

    Awesome! We had a post about this snake wine a while ago (http://lordsofthedrinks.wordpress.com/2013/03/25/five-drinks-for-real-carnivores/), but I never met someone that actually tried it… Have you? What was it like?
    Cheers,

    Yeah I believe you really should! Is it expensive?

    No idea – I didn’t check. But the jars were large so I guess just the volume would make it expensive even f the snake were free!

    Yeah that’s true… Maybe you can try a shot somewhere first, just to try it out!
