What is Awamori?
泡盛 (Okinawan: アームイ, aamui) is an alcoholic beverage indigenous and unique to Okinawa, Japan. It is made from long grain indica rice, and is not a direct product of brewing (like sake) but of distillation (like shōchū).
What is Sanshin?
The Sanshin, a three string guitar or banjo, is an Okinawan musical instrument and precursor to the more popular Shamisen. Unlike Shamisen however, Sanshin are traditionally made of bamboo and covered with the skin of the Burmese or reticulated python.
