Okinawa Tourist Traps: 4 reviews and 2 photos
When shopping for authentic Okinawan crafts (i.e. glass, pottery, bingata), be careful of cheap imitations. It is best to buy directly from the artisans or from a reputable shop, such as the Naha Traditional Crafts Center near the airport. Some shops sell cheap imitations made elsewhere, but like the saying goes: "You get what you pay for."
