Shopping in Okinawa offers everything from ultra-modern shopping centres to unique and independent boutique shops selling locally handmade arts and crafts or speciality foods and drinks. At American Village, you can explore a combination shopping centre and amusement park with a stunning juxtaposition of Eastern culture and American style. At Minsā Kōgeikan, you'll learn about weaving and textiles on the island, and you can buy handmade items or try weaving yourself. One of the busiest local centres is San-A Naha Main Place in the heart of the city centre.

Euglena Mall is less a mall and more a covered shopping street in the centre of town offering tons of big-brand and small independent shops. If sporting goods and hiking gear are your things, check out Nakagawa Sports where you can buy and rent all the hiking, camping and outdoor gear you need for adventures.
