On November 7, Urasoe Technical High School and major convenience store Lawson Okinawa announced that they have developed a product called Sakutto Time, a snack food product using taro.

They started selling it on November 13 in all Lawson stores in Okinawa and in five San-A shopping centers in Urasoe. The price for one is 130 yen, including tax, and only 34000 will be produced.

Ongoing collaborative development of products by Okinawan high schools and Lawson Okinawa started in 2009. The aim is to motivate students to participate in society and to give them opportunities to show their learning outcomes.

Sakutto Time uses piecrust with taro paste. The students also inserted pale pink whipped cream inside to represent the popular row of cherry trees in their school.

Third year cooking course student Shoya Komesu, said, “I would like people to try it during snack time when they are relaxing.” Misa Ueyama, a third year design student, created the packaging and said that she was satisfied with what her hard work has produced and hopes that the product sells out.
