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.

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.
