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.

    Some of the café and restaurants are cool but I don't find the shipping or the general experience of being here especially enthralling. I'm also not to sure what is so American about the place.

    Really cool place to walk around and enjoy the ocean view and do a little shopping. There are a variety of stores and also restaurants. There is also a few arcades and spas. Seriously, you can do a bunch here.

    We love coming here, trying the food, going to the 100 yen shop, arcade and just walking around.

    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.

Where to stay in Chatan-cho

Most visitors to Chatan-cho are seeking out a beachside holiday, so naturally most accommodations in town sit right on the coast. 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.
