Enjoy a Picnic Under Okinawa’s Starry Night Sky on Taketomi Island
27.April.2021 | SPOT
HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island, a hotel resort in Okinawa, is bringing back its night time picnic plan this year where guests can sit on sofas by the beachside with the gorgeous starry sky overhead. The plan is called “Hoshi Furu Yoru no Teingaara Picnic” (Starry Night Milky Way Picnic). Teingaara (てぃんがーら) is Okinawan for the Japanese word for Milky Way (Ama no Gawa, 天の川). It will run from June 1 to August 31.
Gaze at the Milky Way beside the tranquil seaside
Aiyaru Beach is just a five-minute walk from HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island, and it’s here where guests can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Milky Away. The beach is situated away from any hustle and bustle, and not many people visit at night, allowing for a chance to enjoy the sound of the waves. Plus, there aren’t many days when people have picnics when the moon is out, meaning guests can enjoy a more quiet and private picnic under the moonlight on a comfy sofa.
A fancy picnic inspired by the Milky Way
Tuck into a very special picnic based on the Milky Way made with Taketomi Island’s famous Japanese leek, papaya, purple yam, and other delicious veggies as well as island tofu cream and miso. The set comes with a sparkling wine which captures the deep hues of the night sky.
A conversation with the stars
An expert on the Ishigaki Island and the stars will take guests on a journey through the stars, offering commentary on the island’s beauty and culture.
In March 2018, the Yaeyama Islands, which includes Taketomi Island, were recognised by the non-profit organisation International Dark‑Sky Association as Japan’s first International Dark Sky Park for its distinguished quality of starry nights. The Yaeyama Islands have a lower latitude than Tokyo meaning many more stars can be seen in the sky. Summertime is the best season for enjoying its stars too.

The Little BAKERY Tokyo Revamps and Reopens With New Eat-In Area
The beloved takeout bakery The Little BAKERY Tokyo, which is just down the road from another of Harajuku’s popular eateries THE GREAT BURGER, has undergone refurbishment to add a brand new eat-in space. The site reopened on March 22 as a bakery and cafe.
A tasty new eat-in menu
Crushed Avocado Toast | ¥1,250 (Before Tax)
Homemade Maple Granola | ¥1,350 (Before Tax)
New York Pizza (Pepperoni Slice) | ¥1,000 (Before Tax)
Classic Ham, Egg, & Cheddar Cheese Sandwich | ¥1,500 (Before Tax)
Apple Gorgonzola Cheddar Cheese Sandwich | ¥1,450 (Before Tax)
Bread loaves and takeout goodies

Custard Pudding | ¥550
Hokkaido Brioche Loaf – Whole ¥580, Half ¥320 / Hokkaido Whole Wheat Loaf – Whole ¥560, Half ¥300 / Hokkaido Milk Loaf – Whole ¥580, Half ¥320 (Before Tax)
The new eat-in menu features a range of irresistibles like vegan-friendly avocado toast, homemade granola topped with fresh fruits and Greek yogurt, a selection of sandwiches made with homemade brioche toast, New York-style, pizza, and more.
Takeout options includes all the classics like bread loaves, sweet custard pudding, soft and crispy croissants, and so on.
There are around 30 baked delights to pick from at The Little BAKERY Tokyo all of which are made using flour from Hokkaido and natural yeast. All items on the menu are made fresh in-house every day, all ingredients from the salt and sugar to the eggs and more are domestic, and all ingredients are sourced sustainably and locally. The bakery also caters to all needs from those with food restrictions and allergies as well as a fantastic vegan menu which replaces animal products like eggs and butter with soy milk and grapeseed oil.
They even sell American-style doughnuts from the doughnut brand GOOD TOWN DOUGHNUTS who are inspired by doughnuts from Brooklyn. There’s around 20-30 to choose from, all colourful and all used with natural ingredients like fruit – none of the bad additives. Of course, there’s vegan doughnuts too, so if you’re struggling to find vegan food in Tokyo, you know where to go.
One worry in the bakery industry is that of leftover stock. But The Little BAKERY Tokyo has a solution for that: by wrapping up their pastries and baked foods and selling them as ‘DAY OLD BREAD’ on their online shop so nothing goes to waste, something which has received huge praise from people across Japan.
Fukuoka Prefecture NPO Releases Fukuoka-Original Sake ‘Seiko Haruyoshi’
Fukuoka-based NPO Haruyoshi has launched limited sales of the first entry in a series of original sake releases, all of which are being made in Fukuoka. The name of the project’s first sake is Seiko Haruyoshi.
Seiko Haruyoshi 01 | ¥2,200
The sake is made from rice cultivated by Haruyoshi Denen in collaboration with Kazuyoshi Hamachi, a Japanese rice farmer based in Itoshima, Fukuoka. Haruyoshi Denen launched in 2019 and aims to have locals participating in the planting and harvesting of Yamada Nishiki, a short-grain rice used in the production of high-quality sake.
About the brewer’s rice of Itoshima
Itoshima is located in western Fukuoka, popular as a tourist area for its expansive mountain range and gorgeous ocean views. This rich natural environment also makes it an ideal location for rice cultivation, including Yamada Nishiki rice. This is what lead to the creation of Haruyoshi Denen, a project which enables the brewers to share their brewing story with locals.
Fukuoka’s sake breweries
Throughout the duration of this long-term project, a different Fukuoka-based brewery will be chosen to craft a sake each year. Producing the Seiko Haruyoshi is Isonosawa, the only Japanese brewery located in Ukiha, Fukuoka. Ukiha is abundant in natural water drawn from the Chikugo River.
