Shopping in Chatan, Okinawa

Most shopping in the central Okinawa town of Chatan is focused around Mihama’s American Village. With its massive landmark Ferris wheel American village is easy to spot. Not far away from U.S. military bases Kadena Air Base, Camp Lester and Camp Foster it’s no big mystery how American Village got it’s name.

A little South of Mihama’s American Village and north of Araha Beach is the area of Hamby. Named after the old Hamby Air Field this area is most famous for the “Hamby Free Zone”, a flea market that erupts with activity every Friday and Saturday night. Locals set up stalls on the streets and patrons come to try and find the best deals or just mull around and check out the goings on of the evening.
