It's actually a wet market with lots of seafood for sale including lobsters, etc. I would recommend you to try the Okinawan speciality - a big sea whelk which glows at night. If you want to have your seafood cooked on 2/F, there will be a supplement charge of Yen 500 per person. However, sashimi was good enough for us... More

It's on the major tourists' shopping street, but it's an alley, an alley with a solid walkway, off-shoot sidewalks and halls that are tentacle-like in relation to the main walkway, countless colorful shops and stalls, and a fish market that is a photographer's delight.

Excellent shopping street for all that souvenir or funky "only in okinawa" clothing item or shoes. That said, if you are taller than 1.78m and wear shoes larger than a US 8, don't bother looking for clothes or funky shoes

We went there on my last day. I enjoyed it, picking up some great samples of the famous Ryukuan salts for my kitchen, got some great green tea soft ice. etc. There's so much a variety of things available there. I'm surprised I didn't buy much more!

We enjoyed wandering for a couple of hours around the interconnected Heiwadori covered St and Makishi market. The fish and vegetable stalls were compelling. We had to have sashimi and salad in the market; everything looked so fresh and it was. Delicious. Had a great shaved ice, red bean, mochi and brown sugar dessert. I really enjoyed tasting the Okinawa... More
