It is this Ryugujo that sells “Ryukyu no Kuni”, a submarine Awamori. It is in a place that surely stops on the way to the Churaumi Aquarium. The appearance which made the motif “Dragon Palace” of a fairy tale attracted your eye.
The inside of the Ryugujo is an ordinary souvenir shop. Many standard souvenirs of Okinawa are sold.
In such a place, the submarine Awamori “Ryugu no Kuni”. It is 7,020 yen for new Awamori left in one year. It is expensive compared to ordinary souvenirs, but that is why I think it is perfect for an adult souvenir. Unlike ordinary awamori, deposits of coral are attached to the bottle. It is proof that it was laid on the seafloor. Even just the appearance will be a souvenir that will remain impressive.
By the way, old Awamori (Kuusu) that lay asleep for 5 years is 9,180 yen, old Awamori (Kuusu) put in bed for 8 years is 10,260 yen.

It looks like a colorful glitter and it looks like a very delicious sake. It makes awamori so mellow and delicious after fall asleep in the ocean. I was surprised!
