to enjoy local products without the touristy feel, visit Makishi. The food and ingredients here are very fresh and usually come from nearby farms less than 10 km away

Almost missed it. Stay "right" at the shopping street and look down each alley you pass. Lots of great, fresh seafood. Purchase it on the spot and then take it up stairs to eat it raw or have it cooked. The cheapest sashimi we has in Japan! If you take it upstairs, just know you also have to order something... More

The bloggers say how cheep of Sushi, actually it's not true, To compare with Tokyo, the price just quite the meal of market 2F, and the sea food no surprised me. There is no high end type of Sushi.

It's like a cross between an aquarium and a fish market. People in Okinawa will eat fish most people pay to keep alive in glass tanks. Much of the market is touristy shops, but persevere and follow the hand written signs to the fresh market down the main arcade.

Turn left into a side road off Kokusai Dori and you'll find a carpark next to the market. The vendors speak Mandarin. They haggle for your business without being rude to each other. They don't shout or curse like true Mandarin speakers. They are polite. That is in itself unique. Japanese Okinawans speaking Mandarin politely to get your business. Wonderful.... More

I walked to the market from the doubletree hotel. The market itself is not huge but very nice for grabbing a few last minute gifts before you leave. Also really good spot to pick out your own food and have one of the stands cook it for you. I really enjoyed the market oh and the Habu Sake yum I... More

The Makishi Markets are just different enough from other Japanese markets for it to be interesting and in many ways it felt like a different country rather than just a different Japanese city. That's probably due to their Chinese heritage. The markets are full of touristy souvenirs and Hawaiian printed dresses and shirts. I have heard Okinawa described as the... More

The market located in shopping streets & makes me feel like time-tripped to 80s. Wide varieties of local food on 1F & they can cook for u to eat on 2F. Worth visit to see something different!
