Nago Pineapple Park Winery Retail Shop

The huge object designed in the atrium space forms a focal point with its overwhelming presence. Made of steel, the object is reminiscent of a pineapple wine brewing machine. Heikki Shinjiro imagined a space that would symbolize the next 100 years of Okinawa, a time of transformation for the facility. The project team for the Nago Pineapple Park Winery aimed to create a space where adults can enjoy the image, taste, and color of pineapples.

Nago Pineapple Park

When it was founded in 1979, it was such a cozy shack, selling only pineapples from Okinawa Prefecture. In 1992, Nago Pineapple Park was reborn as a "theme park" specializing in pineapples from the pineapple sales store it was then. In the same year, the Nago Pineapple Winery was established and Japan's first pineapple wine was born. In the midst of the 2020 covic19 pandemic, a new winery and souvenir facility, sweets de painanpple, opened with the aim of creating a theme park for adults. In the future, a factory lounge with a brandy factory made from pineapple, and an entertainment restaurant are scheduled to open.
