Sugarcane harvesting in Yomitan Village

Sugarcane harvesting in Yomitan Village

An Okinawan man harvesting sugarcane in Yomitan Village, Okinawa Japan. Uji, or sugarcane, is the largest crop in Okinawa Prefecture. Brown sugar is made by boiling the juice squeezed from the sugarcane. It’s high in calcium and all kinds of minerals. Also, the material left over from straining the juice of the sugarcane is known as “bagasse” and, as it contains many dietary fibers, its powdered form has recently gained popularity as an effective product for good digestion.
