Kokusai-dori is the center of Naha's shopping, dining, and nightlife. This street is constantly full of people blowing money at the souvenir shops, enjoying great seafood at places like Sam's Anchor Inn, and sipping brews at Helios and other bars.

In the area you will find Heiwa-dori Shopping Arcade. This covered shopping arcade is a less-expensive area of Naha to buy groceries and souvenirs. This is where I purchased my favorite fruit in the world: tropical and tasty dragonfruit.

Also nearby are The Tsuboya Pottery Shops, great places to pick up vases, Shi-Shi dogs, and other pottery items. Prices tend to be very steep, but it's worth at least wandering around and admiring the handiwork.
