Yatai Street in Naha

A small section of Kokusai dori recreates the atmosphere of Yatai, the Japanese street food stalls (Yatai are especially popular in Fukuoka). Although they are not Yatai in the strict sense because they are permanent establishments, the restaurants of Yatai street are small and offer different culinary specialities with an atmosphere reminiscent of the Yatai. Of course, plenty of alcoholic beverage are available from beer to Awamori, the local strong alcohol.

A market street in Naha

On the side of Kokusai Dori in Naha, not too far from the fish market, is located an interesting shopping arcade filled with souvenir shops and restaurants. It is a really nice place to find good quality food that is perhaps more authentic and less commercial than what can be found directly on Kokusai Dori. You can definitely see more locals eating in that region.

Kokusai Dori, Naha, Okinawa (International street)

Kukusai Dori in Naha, which literally means international street, features many gift shops and restaurants. It is a great place to spend the evening while visiting Okinawa’s capital. Some gifts that are particularly famous in Okinawa include the famed locally-brewed Orion beer, many types of pork products, and Awamori, a local alcohol. For the more daring, Habushu (or Snake Sake) is an alcohol made from Awamori and snakes. Habushu bottles usually feature a curled-up snake at the bottom.
