    Very cool place to visit while in Naha/Okinawa - it’s about a 20 minute cab ride from the Naha cruise terminal. I do wish the main reviews posted in Google actually showed that the main building burnt down in 2019 (5th time it burned down) and the massive palace building is being meticulously recreated. I was disappointed but when we got our tickets (approx $3 USD pp and they DO take small USD bills!) and went inside the restoration process was fascinating to watch - workers are there on week days so you can see the work being done.

    That said, it was still worth a visit and the grounds were quite extensive and the other buildings/walls/gates were really neat. There are also multiple places to get food (the top floor of the info building has a full service restaurant and a small cafe with snack offerings like popcorn chicken, soup noodles and ice cream), museum shops and some shopping kiosks from various vendors selling tourist Knick knacks.

    FYI you only need tickets if you want to go into the building to see the restoration work and the other back areas of the compound.

    A fun market along with all other Japanese markets we have been to great to wander, lots of food to try and interesting to watch the people. We spent a couple of hours wandering the streets and trying different food. Picked up some t-shirts for $15 which is cheap.

    The busiest part of town, I suppose, with all kinds of shops and restaurants. It's fun walking down from one end to the other especially on a Sunday when they blocked off traffic and making this into a pedestrians only area. Do try the snacks along the street. Absolutely enjoyed the hot cheese cake on a cold day. We did not do too much shopping other than a few boxes of cookies on this 4th trip to Naha.

    ... with a lot to See and experience. You are free to touch many things and Look at the very closely. Unfortunately a lot of text is just japanese and there is no english information nearby. Thus you need the audio guide (I guess, not sure if there is one).

    There is a room in front of the shop where you can try a lot of things by your own, e. g. playing the sanchin (a traditional japanese guitar with three strings).

    If you're hungry there's a pretty good restaurant on the first floor where we ate an amazing vegan Curry dish for aprx. 7€.

    Very well built garden with some nice paths to walk and a bunch of good spots for nice pictures. Relaxing and beautiful, well worth the time spent.

    Cute gardens, small entry fee, paid parking near by, you can even walk under the waterfall. Pretty and quiet, very easy to walk around, not very large gardens in Naha, Couple of vending machines dispensing drinks at the entrance if you build up a thirst, worth a visit.

    Nothing special yet it was good to walk this peaceful old narrow street and chat with a couple of locals. A stop at Sui Dun Chi restaurant at the bottom is well worth it.

    Naminoue-gu Shrine is a must to visit. Keep it mind that they are very strict with the opening hours, get there at least 45 minutes before they close.

    The pottery street is within walking distance from Kokusai street but it is a totally different atmosphere. I love the tranquility and peacefulness of this place. I enjoyed taking a stroll there with the humble design and historical pottery shophouses along street. It would be perfect if there is outdoor cafe for me to indulge myself in a cup of hot latte!!

    Not as big as Makishi public market and with only one or two restaurants to dine in, Tomari market offer better value in terms of price and less hard selling. Take note that if you plan to buy from the various shops do note that the wasabi and soya sauce may be limited. There are some tables at the entrance where you can stand to eat. Nothing too spectacular here other than better priced fish and this place is quite a distance away from the main streets.

    Interesting to visit a local mall. Many Japanese clothing brands, a big supermarket, beauty products stores, etc.

    We spend about 1.5 hours here. Bought some Japanese Clothings. There were good discounts. Dont think made in Japan though.

    Bought beauty products as well. So overall a good mall to browse japanese fashion.

    There was a bag, wallet concept store selling coach, anna sui, katespade, tsumori chisato wallets but i find very expensive. Example, a katespade walket costs S$400?

    In another shop known as concept style, it sells shoes, clothings, belts, bags, etc but of lower quality. The slippers were made in thailand. So again, do not carry home these items if you are visiting chachuchak any time soon.

    When in Japan, buy Japanese items. This is our shopping guide 101.

    As this was our last evening to shop, we just buy whatever we need ala minute.

    Still, a good experience to look into local products and lifestyle.
