Sakaemachi Market shopping street栄町市場商店街
This shopping district is two minutes away on foot from Asato Station. It appeared during the aftermath of the war and used to flourish as the central district of Naha City. You can still feel the old aura nowadays, as the district pulses with Okinawan postwar history and a distinct Showa-period vibe. On the last Saturday of every month from June through October, the “Sakaemachi Market Street Stall Festival” is held, and many other events are regularly hosted as well.

Okinawa Main Areas
Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
