Kubota, Okinawa City— On November 22, the Plaza House Shopping Center unveiled its newest additions: Roger’s Food Market, a food hall which features quality delicacies from around the world, and the Cinema Plaza House 1954, a mini-theater.

Plaza House has curated an offering of “relaxed and luxurious” fashion items and lifestyle products. With its newest addition of gastronomy and culture, the shopping center is set to offer all aspects of “clothing, food, home, and play.”

Roger’s Food Market, which is currently soft-opened, boasts 600 square meters of floor space on the ground level. This new addition was made possible by grant aid provided by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, as part of its support measures of small and medium enterprises.

The food hall features a brown color scheme and offers spices, condiments, desserts and foods. A dining area is provided for customers purchasing the carefully crafted delicacies from the delicatessen or Ebony & Ivory, which offers Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. Customers will also find fresh cuts of meat and fish, a wide array of wines, and Roger’s brand products available exclusively at the Plaza House Shopping Center.

Miyuki Sekinishi, 45, an Okinawa City office worker said, “It feels like I’m on vacation in a foreign country. There are so many fashionable products to choose from, it’s exciting.”

Yoshino Taira, president of Plaza House Inc., alluded to the exotic air of the city and its history, and said: “We are spreading the appeal of the old and new Koza, through gastronomy and fashion.”

The food market is in its soft-open phase until December 4, open 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., and will continue to open its doors at 10 a.m. starting December 5.
