Kokusai-dori Street (国際通り)
Kokusai-dori Street located in the center of Naha City is the face of Okinawan tourism. It has accomplished significant growth from the burnt ruins after World War II, so the street of about 1.6 kilometers is also called “The Miracle Mile”. It is lined with restaurants and souvenir shops so you are guaranteed to definitely find an Okinawan souvenir if you visit. There are also entertainment facilities such as Yoshimoto Okinawa Kagetsu. It becomes a pedestrian parade from 12 noon to 6 p.m. every Sunday and there is no access for regular vehicles. A variety of events such as mini live concerts and street performances are held.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
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.
