Okinawa Shopping

  • Okinawan sweets

    JahanaKippan is a 6th generation family business specialising in traditional Okinawan sweets. Using locally grown citrus fruit and winter melon, the sweets are hand made daily and sold only from the family store which is located in central Naha, just off Kokusai Dori ('international street') which is the main shopping drag. Just walk up...

  • Kokusai Dori

    This is a must see for all visitors to Okinawa. Anything Okinawan and not can be found here. It's a stretch of road that is famous for it's shops, clubs, and restaurants. On sundays between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. the road is closed for all traffic except busses. Cafes put tables on the street, jugglers entertain the crowd, and children draw with chalk....

  • American Village

    American style shopping area, plenty of arcades and fun things to do. Sunset beach is at the end of the street. Restaurants for when you get hungry. Check out "Futenma" right before the beach. Okinawan food and an adventure for sure. This was the first time I put a raw egg in my soup. Right before is an Indian style shop with great clothes to wear...

  • Outside Gate 2

    So here you are on Kadena AB. It's a Sunday afternoon and you want to do something, but don't know what. The weather is..ugh...somewhat okay. Let's say it's not raining. You just got paid and have some money in your pocket. Then you remember all those presents you wanted to send home. Here is what you do: go done Kuter and park at the USO gate 2....

  • Kokusai-dori

    Kokusai-dori is the center of Naha's shopping, dining, and nightlife. This street is constantly full of people blowing money at the souvenir shops, enjoying great seafood at places like Sam's Anchor Inn, and sipping brews at Helios and other bars.In the area you will find Heiwa-dori Shopping Arcade. This covered shopping arcade is a less-expensive...

  • Indoor market

    This is the indoor market on Kokusai-Dori street. It stretches for a loooooooooong way, with lots of branches shooting off from the main route.

  • Shi-Shi Dogs

    Shi-Shi dogs are the ceramic creatures you see on many gates and houses on Okinawa. The dog with the open mouth draws in good luck, while the dog with the closed mouth prevents it from leaving. On Kokusai-dori there is an area of pottery shops selling Shi-Shis. They tend to be expensive, approx US$40 for a pair of small 4" long dogs.

  • Okinawa Glass Art

    Okinawa is famous for glass art. You can see Japanese Bonsai made by glass and avant gard glass art.Click for other examples of lovely glass art at Ryukyu Glass Village!

  • Quality Japanese Confectionery

    I expected this to be "Tourist Trappy", but actually the building itself was carefully constructed like a temple, there is a restaurant and cafe, a on-site bakery and artful and modern shop specialising in its trade. Japanese and Okinawan-style confectionery. The taste and quality is quite nice, and several of the confections have won Japanese...

  • Cute Ornamental Pineapple Plant

    Cute Pineapple buds which can be ornamental as "air plant" as in this photo, or planted in appropriate soil kits which are also sold. A few hundred yen each for plants and soil kit.
