Okinawa AtoZ



Okinawa and pork have had a very important relationship since ancient times. It’s a very famous Okinawan saying that Okinawan people don’t leave any part of a pig unused except its squeal.

Yes, Okinawan people eat all parts of the pig even bones and face. Smoked pig faces called Chiragaa are sold at local markets; “chira” meaning “face” and “gaa” meaning “skin.”

The image of chewing on a pig face may raise some strong emotions in some people, but they are very tasty. If you have a chance, please try it some day.
