What area to stay in?

Greetings all, I just booked a flight to Okinawa next week. I am a US expat living in China. I am looking for info on where I should stay. I like markets, sushi and shopping. Cheers! Big Duke.

Okinawa isn't quite like the rest of Japan. It has its own culture and food. Sushi and ramen aren't the most popular items there.

Without a car, it's difficult to go explore the island just by relying on public transport so perhaps the rather touristy Kokusaidori (see Nao's link above) is your best option.

Also refer to the link below for Okinawa attractions:
