Okinawa, Japan Trip 2020 - Day 5 - American Village (Travelled in January 2020) - Part 2 - American Village
Finally, we reached the American Village, a mere 5 minutes walk from the bus stop. Was a hot day despite being winter in January. The place looked like a fun place. The main attraction that caught our eye is the ferris wheel. Looked like a sleepy town, not much people around. We wandered around the place and took lots of photos. We walked towards the famous Blue Seal Ice Cream restaurant. Had a mixed vanilla and taro flavour ice cream. Was super nice. The place had lots of nice places to take instagram photos. Haha my hubby is my photographer and help me with all the photo taking. The American Village is located near the sea and with a nice beach. But I was too tired to walk towards the edge of the beach in the hot weather and carrying my winter coat. The weather can be hot at one moment and cold at another moment. There's a big Aeon Mall here too. Lots of shopping to be done here with a big supermarket. We went to the food court and the price here is cheaper than what we had in Naha. After a long day, we walked towards the main road to take the bus back to Naha. The bus stop is on the opposite side where we first alighted. Spotted a retro billboard of A&W advertisement, beautiful. The bus journey back to Naha is 45 mintues and the fare is 740 yen. We almost doze off in the bus.
