I want more shikuwasa

Shikuwasa is a citrus fruit from Okinawa that tends to show up in juice or soda form during the summer in the rest of Japan.  I don’t know what it is about Shikuwasa that I like so much, but I really love Shikuwasa soda.  I recently had some Shikuwasa water, which was also pretty good.  It’s a pretty sour citrus fruit, but it tastes really good.  Last year, I had some Shikuwasa soda from Okinawa Bottlers, but I haven’t seen any this summer.  All we could find was Shikuwasa soda from Co-op which comes in tiny cans.

Have you ever tried Shikuwasa soda?

  1. I can’t say that I’ve ever tried Shikuwasa soda, but you have sparked my interest. I’ll have to keep an eye out for it when I’m back in Japan 🙂
