Mihama American Village, Chatan-cho

Find a bit of the good old U-S-A at Mihama American Village, an extensive entertainment complex containing restaurants, shops, theaters, and more catering to the large American military presence on the island. Pay a visit to this North American-style outdoor mall and explore its wide avenues surrounded by palm trees and outdoor patios. Shop at a variety of stores offering big-name international brands, see the latest blockbuster at the theater, or kick back with a bite to eat or a drink at one of the many restaurants within the mall. You'll find plenty of buildings outfitted in styles reminiscent of the Wild West, California, and other famous American locales. A towering Ferris Wheel allows you to enjoy a bird's-eye view over the complex. Plan my Chatan-cho trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • It took about 45 minutes bus from kencho-Mae. The nearest bus stop is kuwae. AEON also had insta Sheen and a cute little streets. International Street go see if you get bored around is so good. Waterslide souvenirs, international Street is like visiting a cheap feel.

  • This might be a good spot to stop with the family for a time filler. There was nothing too exciting to see. We tried the curry restaurant and it was excellent.  more »
  • The Ferris wheel looks at the wind in the early morning. Because of the typhoon wind near the wind, so there are not too many visitors. Take a slow journey for about 15 minutes, a good relax trip. But it takes a while to get to the corner of the Ferris wheel.

  • Not as American as I hoped it would be but it’s a nice shopping village....check out Blue seal ice cream and the Mexican restaurants. Really good food. There are lots of little stores that sell cute trinkets for less than ¥200. Great hang out spot.
  • So-so place. Can drop by to take a look if you’ve extra time on your trip. Otherwise, it’s ok to skip this too. Be careful not to park your car within any fenced area! These areas will be closed after 8pm and your car won’t be able to leave the compound. Park at the unfenced places near to the shops!
  • This is another side of Japan! You will feel that you’re not in Japan because of the people and building there. You can also find various kind of souvenirs such as Beniimo tart. It was wonderful places!
  • Place is really nice. But somehow it doesn't really have a Japanese feel to it. Perhaps it's great for the local Americans, but as a tourist, I feel it needs a bit Japanese touch somehow.
  • It's near to Christmas and the decorative lights makes this place so manificient and beautiful. Suitable for family time from young and grandparents. Easy access and move around shops to shop.

Where to stay in Chatan-cho

The beach to the north offers a selection of mid-range hotels and rental apartments near the sea, while the area of waterfront development around the American Village Ferris wheel has a collection of upmarket hotels close to some of the most popular restaurants. Budget-friendly guesthouses and rentals lie in the more residential districts inland.
