A popular okonomiyaki shop in Okinawa, run by an Osakan owner. Umanosuke Maehara (Maehara, Ginowan City)
Okonomiyaki speciality shop "Umanosuke" has an original arrangement to make okonomiyaki and monjayaki with a hot iron. Making okonomiyaki is fun and easy. You can either let the staff do okonomiyaki for you, or you can also make the okonomiyaki yourself using the iron pan on each table.
What a unique shop sign! This okonomiyaki flavor has been continually offered for the last 30 years here at Okinawa's Umanosuke okonomiyaki restaurant.
The owner from Osaka opened the Umanosuke okonomiyaki restaurant in Okinawa in 1983. It first opened in Ganeko in Ginowan City but moved to the current store in Maehara in 2012. There are also two locations in Tomigusuku which are part of the current franchise, however, there are two restaurants in Okinawa. The restaurant was introduced in a manga, and there is even an anecdote from that same manga. Inside the store and the entrance, there is a unique sign illustrated by a Japanese designer and a drawing decorated by the owner. It is a great sign you can laugh at and have fun. You should check out the T-shirts staff members are wearing.
If you have a child, try our tatami mat seating! Try our 500 yen lunch or a 90 minute all-you-can-eat and drink!
The okonomiyaki is not only Osaka style because of the owner. The owner also desgined the style! You can create your own okonomiyaki at your table or you can have staff members make it for you. Our staff will be happy to help you how to make your own monjayaki.
