Okinawa Nightlife

  • Country Bar

    This was my favorite place to go and have some fun with friends. The owners are the most amazing people I've ever met in my life, and become some great friends. The bartender, Yoshi, is the most amazing and craziest man I've ever met. If you love country music and line dancing, this is the best country bar on island. They have ethe largest dance...

  • Let loose

    Need to let loose and have a good time? Go to Saicolo on Kokusai Street. Great music, primarily hip-hop. Crowd's composed of Americans & locals. Usually pretty friendly sometimes a bit of a wait to get your drink. Best thing is the free-drink menu which is actually common at a lot of the clubs here. The cover is around 25 bucks per head but stick...

  • Dinner Theater

    If you want to enjoy something truly different, try to catch a performance at this dinner theater. A quartet of ladies perform about a dozen or so traditional Okinawan dances in period costume on stage while you enjoy a traditional Okinawan dinner. Please wear business casual or higher, although most Okinawans you see there will be in either camp...

  • A blend of traditional and pop music...

    Kalahaai is the home of Rinken Band - a popular local group that blends the traditional roots of Okinawan music with popular sounds. If you catch one of their concerts or a live performance at Kalahaai, you will surely get up and dance the "kachashee" with everyone else. (Kachashee is a local dance that is performed at most celebrations and...

  • Live Music

    Live music is a big part of Okinawa's nightlife. Naha City is without doubt the most popular place for live music, but Okinawa City's Gate 2 Street is where Japanese Rock was born. There are still many clubs here that date back decades with very high quality musicians taking the stage.

  • Clubs, bars, and music!

    The main island of Okinawa has excellent nightlife, especially in Naha. Around the island you can find anything from nightclubs to casual beach bars. In the summer, there is plenty of action at the beach resort areas while Naha City stays busy all year round. The style of dress for most Okinawa clubs and bars is usually pretty casual, but some of...

  • Not quite the same as Hawaii

    There's nothing really special about this place except for having a live band. They also have a lot of hostesses running around that you can have sit with you. They will charge you $20 to sit and have a drink with you if that's the kind of thing that you're into. Personally, I have better ways to spend my hard earned paycheck than by paying some...

  • Eat, Drink and Sing

    I don't know the real name of the bar. My friends and I dubbed it "The Chicken Shack" because of the sign out front and they serve good chicken inside. Also all the little filipino girls talking makes it sound like a chicken coop. It's a lot of fun if you want to go drink some beer, eat some chicken, sing some karaoke, and hang out with the...

  • Warning for obviously foreign guys.

    Because of all the problems with the US Military in Okinawa, many bars and nightclubs have barred foreign guys, UNLESS they are already accompanied by a female. Bars that do permit entrance may have signs in English warning against trying to pick up girls, and any rule breaking can end up in getting all foreigners kicked out for the night.

  • Guinness anyone

    Located near gate 2 of Kadena AB is this quaint Irish pub. The pub usually opens from 1900(?) to 0300. If you crave Guinness and some fish and chips this a place to be. Be warned that this place is full of US military personnel especially on the weekends. Casual

  • Giant Bats

    One evening in Okinawa we noticed large flying objects that could not be birds because they had no tails, and they were much too large. When we examined the nearby trees we found they were loaded with cute furry bats. I think they are fruit eaters (not vampire blood suckers) - but who knows? these bats were quite naked
