Hi, everyone! Tulip here from Ryukyu Entertainment!
Finally, it’s getting warmer in Okinawa.
Nice season for traveling!
To those who are thinking of going for a trip to Okinawa or those who need to go away for a relaxing day, don’t miss today’s information.
I’d like to introduce this attractive town located in the middle of Okinawa Island.
It is an ideal spot for those who want to have a great day at one location without driving around too far.
You can find most things in Chatan such as beach, food, shopping area, beautiful sunset and even hot spring.
You may wonder where to start. Yes, it is a big town.
Here is a suggestion!
First of all, why don’t you start with yummy breakfast in Chatan!
There are various cafés where you can enjoy wide range from a light meal to a big breakfast.
My recommendation is HALE NOA CAFÉ.
You can taste yummy pancakes and coffee while you enjoy Hawaiian atmosphere in the café.
It will definitely be a great start of the day!
You might feel like you are in a foreign country as you can see the café is so popular with many foreign customers. Of course, there are other nice cafés in Chatan.

After enjoying a nice breakfast, why don’t you go to nearby Araha Park. You will feel relaxed while strolling and watching the crystal Blue Ocean and white sands.
Your body will feel energized and more motivated to do more fun staff. There are always many joggers, tourists or those walking their dogs in the park. Such a peaceful relaxing park, indeed.
Why don’t we head off to shopping next! You can find Okinawan local shopping mall, San A close to the park.
Even though it is not big, you can enjoy various local shops such as supermarket, 100 yen store, Mujirushi brand store, drug store and other various retail shops. Many local enjoy coming here and chill.
Next, let’s go to another shopping area, American village!
For those who come by their own vehicles, there will be plenty parking space either near Depot Island or Dragon palace.
There is also Chatan public car park in the middle of American village, very convenient.
As soon as you arrive, I recommend you to obtain an area map which you can get it either inside of retails shops or at information center in front of public car park. It will be a great help! Of course you can access official website of American village on your smart phone as well.
There are various shopping sites such as Aeon Chatan , Carnival Mihama, Dragon palace, Depot Island, Makeman(or monkey store), etc.
They provide various items.
You can easily find Okinawa souvenirs such as T-shirts, snacks, key holders, glass, etc.
You can also find imported items or clothes, ethnic taste items or clothes, etc.
Why don’t you take full advantage of these facilities !?
