Okinawa, which is one of Japan’s islands that is apart from the rest of the archipelago, has many indigenous foods. Many vegetables, pork, ingredients, and meals are grown there that I cannot identify are often labeled as Okinawan food. In a wintry night, my friend and I went to eat at Taachi, located in Azabu Juban in Tokyo. We had originally planned for a bar night, but we decided that a hotpot would do us well instead. We ordered several appetizer dishes, then enjoyed our colorful hotpot full of vegetables and tofu. You can see that the hotpot was voluminous at first, but it cooked down as we chatted away through the night. This included lots of antioxidants, and I surely felt warmed up after completing this with just the two of us.
