American Village is located in between 2 US Military Bases, Kadena Air Base and Camp Foster. It is geared to service Military personnels and tourists visiting the island. Plenty of parking spaces and close to the main road for public transportation.

There are many shops, restaurants, bars and other activities such as the big wheel and bowling. The military surplus store Americaya is particularly good for cheap, decent quality clothes and other stuff.
