In the heart of Okinawa sits the lively and much loved shopping strip, Kokusai Dori. Translating literally to International Road, the street got its name from the former "Ernie Pyle International Theater", a movie theater that was built along the road after the war. Kokusai Dori is the main street of the area’s capital city of Naha and it’s the ideal location for shopping, eating, drinking, seeing live music, and everything in between. Like many other Japanese cities, the street stays up late, with many stores trading until 11pm. Cutting diagonally through the center of Naha, this food and shopping mecca is arguably one of the city's biggest attractions for both Japanese and international guests.
