U-MAKU: Authentic Okinawan Delights in Tokyo’s Ariake Area

Located in the quiet residential area in the Ariake area of Koto-ku, Tokyo, U-MAKU stands as a haven for Okinawan cuisine enthusiasts. With a charming location within walking distance from Ariake Garden and Ariake Arena, this culinary gem is manned by a team with roots tracing back to Okinawa, ensuring an affordable yet authentic dining experience. The restaurant, boasting an inviting American ambiance, is not merely a place to dine but a culinary journey meticulously crafted by Okinawa-born connoisseurs.


The very name “U-MAKU” reflects the spirited essence of Okinawa, adding a playful touch to the dining atmosphere. Delight your senses with a menu curated from fresh, direct-from-Okinawa ingredients, complemented by a diverse selection of alcoholic beverages, including the renowned awamori.


A must-try masterpiece is the Okinawa soba, adorned with the succulent Rafute (Okinawan Braised Pork Belly). Immerse yourself in the delightful harmony of firm, chewy noodles and a rich broth, allowing the subtle flavors to caress your palate. The Rafute, boasting melt-in-the-mouth tenderness, is a true culinary marvel. Equally tempting is the Goya Champuru, an emblematic Okinawan dish uniting bitter melon (Goya) and pork in a stir-fry. A celebration of balance, this dish not only tantalizes the taste buds but is believed to embrace healthful qualities.
