Heiwa shopping dori is a covered shopping mall along Kokusai Street. There's shops selling fruits, Okinawan specialties like sea grapes, black/brown sugar, there are duty free drug stores, clothes shops, souvenir shops etc. It's a great option for shopping when it rains.

This was a great place to spend a couple hours walking around and getting some shopping done. Everything from food, market, to souvenirs. Go first thing in the morning to avoid crowds but not everything will be open yet.

Apart from the similar kind of stuff available, I feel it's so much smaller scale than those in other parts of Japan. We got bored and tired after a short while. It's good to visit, but don't pin high hopes. Things aren't exactly that cheap,...More

This place has everything from small quaint shops to store with brand name items. The place to go for Okinawan souvenirs and sampling popular foods. I loves the salt ice cream and pineapple on a stick. Was able to purchase kimonos for family back home.
