Makishi Public Market

Makishi Public Market is a place which is filled with Okinawan energy.

At the market, you can see many tropical fish, pork (they sell pork faces too!), vegetables and all the ingredients that Okinawan people use in there daily lives.

The heroines of the markets are always anma (mothers).
In Okinawa, the leading people of the market are women, and you can feel Okinawan energy there.

Heiwa Street

Heiwa Street is one of the most popular shopping places in Okinawa.

It’s a long, covered shopping arcade with many tiny shops where people buy food, clothes and all the things they need for their daily lives.

The main street in Naha is International Street, and Heiwa Street is running perpendicular to it. While International Street is pretty in style and has a lot of tall buildings, the shops on Heiwa Streets are so tiny and kind of old-fashioned.

Same as the public market, the leading characters here are also anma.

Info

International Street is located right in central Naha.
The street stretches from the Naha Bus Terminal to Makishi Station on the Okinawa Monorail.

Humby Night Market

Humby Night Market is on of the places where Okinawan young people hang out. You can also grab some light meals and drinks there.

I think people who sell things there are not doing their business (side job) for living, but they do it for fun, so shoppers can enjoy talking with the clerks and it’s really fun!

Actually, when I was in Okinawa, my mom and I often took part in it and sold our hand-made things. It was really fun to meet new people, work and hang out at the same time!
