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

This market is situated in the middle of International Street. You can buy lots of fresh sea foods in the ground floor with very very reasonable price. Those shop keepers are mainly English speaking Chinese, come from Taiwan and Mainland China.They will cook all the food you choice in the restaurants on the second floor of this market at low...

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
