Khoa and I took a trip to the big island this past weekend and we were again mesmerized by the variety of items you can buy in the stores.  Many people who live in Okinoshima think that there aren’t a lot of shopping options, and I guess that’s true when compared to the mainland.  But to us, Okinoshima is a mecca of new foods that you can’t buy on our tiny island of Chibu.
