  • 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.
