I don't really go to American Village because I would rather experience Okinawa and Okinawan culture. American village kind of has a California feel. If you would like an American experience in Okinawa, this is the place.

So many other beautiful places to visit in Okinawa. Run down! Beach area is dirty and lacking. Not sure why people even go there. I was forced to stay in an area hotel and walked around for one night. underwhelmed !!

It's a very touristy place, but they do have some good places to eat, I would probably recommend staying away from the arcades the games are extremely rigged. Be sides places to eat there is plenty of shopping in the area.

We went when it was already dark, most shops were closed but we went for dinner and drinks. It was nice but touristy walk. Saw the fireworks over the water on Saturday night, not sure how often they do those though.

AV, as we in Okinawa call American Village for short, is the hub of the Chatan area. It sits in a very central area between 2 large US military installations right on the waterfront. It has tons of restaurants, shopping, arcades, bowling, go-carton, etc so...More

The town is pretty catered towards tourism but don't let that put you off! It has good shops and restaurants as well as a convenient spot to watch the sunset. Most hotels are located opposite the village or even in the village itself so taking...More
