Beach, good food and shopping - All in one place

Even though the place seems rather dated, I prefer it over Koukusai-dori due to the proximity to the Sunset Beach (where you can apparently have a beautiful sunset view during a... read more

American Village, what can I say. It is extremely fake, touristy and the only goal is to sell stuff. The ferris wheel has to be the slowest anywhere in the world! Junk food everywhere (please don't talk to me about taco rice...). We were stuck in Naha longer than expected as we couldn't go to any of the islands due... More

Big car park, free parking, place for shopping, food and arcade. My teens spent 2 days in Sega arcade, really enjoyed themselves, not much people even in holiday season. T-shirt prints looks better in this area but price is a bit high.

Even though the place seems rather dated, I prefer it over Koukusai-dori due to the proximity to the Sunset Beach (where you can apparently have a beautiful sunset view during a fine weather) as well as the variety of cafes (not common in Koukusai-Dori and you can get a beautiful sea view from some cafes), restaurants (serving Japanese food from...

I found it rather interesting place and undeniably commercialized. Good place to pick up Japanese-American souvenirs at the shops. Some of the shops also sell unique limited edition tee-shirts with an Okinawan twist! Quality was good.

You can watch movies there, nothing much, very touristy. Weekend there was a live band which gives a great atmosphere. All the american brand food can be found there.

We stayed in a hotel nearby and visited this place twice. View from the Ferris wheel is excellent. There are many restaurants and shops nearby.

Come here often to kill time see the sunset and people watch. There are many places to eat drink and shop here. There is a lot of history in American village. My wife took a college course history of the ryukyu island and American village came up and they took a field trip there. Ferris wheel is amazing and the... More
