  • American Depot is usually wear clothes the shop recommended for finding a military relationship. It is best to bring a spare time because there are other, various shops and restaurants. Hard find parking on the evening is often crowded on weekends, so watch out.

  • It is in that atmosphere, many of the native Americans. You can enjoy the atmosphere of Americans in Japan, not tourists. Tehy visitors that no place will be exciting if you can blend into the place. I think it's good from outside hotel area in a few hours if you want and spend the day.

  • Couple seems to be 800 yen 1,000 yen Wednesday. But we had accidentally overlooked. Next I went to there was witness of the American village and ride the Ferris wheel, and let the plan is enacted. Built overlooking the sea, is recommended. When we got the weather is bad, sorry.

  • Most everything opens at 11. Little shops and restaurants. It backs up to the water, so makes a Great place to watch the sunset and have a coffee or cocktail. They also have free wifi. It has a little bit of everything: chocolatier, hair salon, nail salon, clothing stores, bars, liqour store, icecream shop, christmas store, massage, even a game room. Obviously Americanized restaurants reside here among the mix of traditional ( but even the traditional have American themed food selections), and some familiar stores (hurley, doc Martin, etc.) Mixed in with other stores. It has a little bit of everything to offer. If you are a tourist, bring your passport and save on the sales tax of 8%.
  • If you feel like walking, this place is a good exercise for you. Everything you want is within reach. Mall, coffee shop, arcades, shopping areas, restaurants, spa, walk or swim by the beach, listen to good music or watch a movie. Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes to go around the area.
  • Really cool shops, restaurants and bars. Everything has an American theme to it which would make sense. The feris wheel is really cool you get a great view of Ginowan!
  • Mihama American Village is an interesting place to walk around, shop, and perhaps have a beer. Shops are interesting with architecture different from what you normally see in Japan. A couple of hours is enough. Close to a small beach. Good Okinawan food restaurant nearby. (Rinken's Kitchen)
  • American themed shops and restaurants. Many things to eat and buy. Close to the beach.
