Our most recent trip here in Oki was to Okinawa's very own "American Village." It's an extremely popular tourist attraction on the island (especially to Chinese visitors) and it consists of a variety of stores, eating establishments, and an enormous Ferris wheel. I couldn't decide if this place felt more like the Jersey Shore Boardwalk, Universal Studios/Disney or straight up Havana, Cuba. Regardless of it's architectural style, American Village as a whole is quite beautiful and consists of some very impressive and well-done storefronts. My favorite part about this place could be the rap music circa 2006 that Okinawans frequently play in establishments all across the island. Apparently, to many Okinawans this is the most "American" music which means it's automatically super trendy and cool (lol). I can't deny though that I really enjoy listening to Chris Brown throwbacks on the reg. While at American Village we decided to grab some Thai food which photographed a little better than it tasted!
