Find a bit of the good old U-S-A at 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.
American Village Reviews
A confusing mess of souvenir shops and restaurants... hit or miss on those, I am just reviewing the “theme park concept” not a particular venue within it... more »
明らかに観光客誘致を目的に作られた人工的な「似非アメリカ」ショッピングモール。悪い意味だけではなく、いい意味でアメリカの雰囲気を醸し出してはいる（アメリカに住んでいる私が言うんだから間違いない？）。それなりに楽しめるとは思うんだけど、レストランの値段がどこも明らかに足元を見ている値段で、地元に住んでいる人間としては、週末に遊びに行って気軽にランチを食べる￥ではない。まぁ、車でしか行けないようなとこ... more »An artificial "similar non-American" shopping mall apparently made with the aim of attracting tourists. It's not just a bad meaning, it's a good way to create an American atmosphere (i'm sure you're the one who lives in america? )。 I think you can enjoy it in its own way, but the price of the restaurant is obviously at your feet, and as a local resident, it's not like you're going to go out on a weekend and have lunch. Well, it's easy to find a chain restaurant if you go to nearby Aeon or along Line 58, because it's a place you can only drive to, but the American atmosphere breaks there. Well, it might be nice to go to the seed of the story, but it's not a place where you have to visit on a trip to Okinawa.
We visited during Christmas time and it was really festive! It’s not too crowded since it was low season traveling in Okinawa at the end of the year which is perfect. The vibe is very chill and relaxing. I recommend to have a breakfast or dinner at the end of the village where you can see lots of restaurants with a super great seaside view! Take plenty of cute pictures and many interesting shops to see. Worth to spend a relaxing day here whether you are with friends, family or couples. Oh and The parking area is huge and free!
It is defiantly a place to check out. Lots of restaurants,shops and arcades. If the weather is nice it is worth taking the Ferris wheel to see the area. The sunset along the sea wall is beautiful too
