“Nuchigusui” of seasonal herbs
In Okinawa, we have positively taken into our daily life natural herbs as gifts from God that are good for our health. Plants that can be used for herbs as food and medicine have been cherished and called “Nuchigusui” (means medicine of life) from old times.
Okinawan people have a custom of positively taking familiar vegetables and wild plants into meals and saying “Kusuinatan*” after meals to express gratitude for the meal.
※means what you’ve eaten has become medicine.
From our hope that more people actually feel “Kusuinatan,” we have opened “Herb Cafe & Turmeric Salon.”
