Abstract :This paper investigates how the relationship between food in the restaurant and farmers affect tourism in Okinawa. Although food is not often the main reason for tourism, it plays some role when considered along other factors. A local meal plays a big role in understanding the charm, appeal and culture of a region and consequently helps to attract tourism. Understanding local meals help to shape interest in local agricultural activities and consequently impact on tourism in the agricultural sector. So it is possible to draw a connection between meals and tourism. When this happens there is bound to be a strengthening of relationship between the cooks, farmers and the tourists who are the customers. The method of strengthening the relation between farm producers, cooks, and customers is very important. Through the production of local food crop, making a local delicacy and eating of this food by tourists, a new relationship can be fostered among three sectors. This relationship shows how a local meal can contribute to enhancing tourism in a region. It is possible to set up a good relation. It is expectable that a meal original with an area serves as a system which can contribute to tourism by this.
