Find a bit of the good old U-S-A at American Village, an extensive entertainment complex containing restaurants, shops, theaters, and more catering to the large American military presence on the island. Pay a visit to this North American-style outdoor mall and explore its wide avenues surrounded by palm trees and outdoor patios. Shop at a variety of stores offering big-name international brands, see the latest blockbuster at the theater, or kick back with a bite to eat or a drink at one of the many restaurants within the mall. You'll find plenty of buildings outfitted in styles reminiscent of the Wild West, California, and other famous American locales. A towering Ferris Wheel allows you to enjoy a bird's-eye view over the complex. Plan my Chatan-cho trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

American Village reviews
Great place to hang out with lot of shopping, restaurants and just lazing around. Location is great and friendly staff more »
Beware of the steps. There was a nice noodle restaurant. Good to take photo around only. If you have enough time, a huge household stall nearby is worth to visit instead of those pharmacies. more »
We visited during Christmas time and it was really festive! It’s not too crowded since it was low season traveling in Okinawa at the end of the year which is perfect. The vibe is very chill and relaxing. I recommend to have a breakfast or dinner at the end of the village where you can see lots of restaurants with a super great seaside view! Take plenty of cute pictures and many interesting shops to see. Worth to spend a relaxing day here whether you are with friends, family or couples. Oh and The parking area is huge and free!
It is defiantly a place to check out. Lots of restaurants,shops and arcades. If the weather is nice it is worth taking the Ferris wheel to see the area. The sunset along the sea wall is beautiful too
