Not all of Okinawan traditional culture has disappeared beneath kitsch; within Shuri Castle, there's a tearoom that serves jasmine tea and traditional Ryukyu Kingdom-era pastries. They also give out sheets explaining how the cookies were made.

The ones with the rippled edges are called chinsuko, and are a popular souvenir to bring back to families and coworkers.  These are what I decided to bring.
