comment:

Tacos were introduced from America to Okinawa in the 1980s by the large American military presence there. This taco recipe substitutes rice for tortilla and has a good taste. Okinawa Prefecture contains many small islands and, being located about 645 km from the mainland, is the most southwest of prefectures in Japan.
