Discover the main market street!

  • City Walking

Shijo Hondori means “Main Market Street”. Locals go to this street to do their shopping, hence the name of the street.

Half way on the street, there is a market called “Makishi Public Market”. On the first floor, typical Okinawan meat and seafood are sold. Many locals shop fresh food here before dinnertime. Tourists also shop here to have the food they bought on the first floor cooked and served at the cafeteria on the second floor. The customers can have their food cooked in various styles.This system of shopping and having fresh food cooked attracts tourists, making the “Makishi Public Market” a popular spot.

Around the market, there are various shops, from fruit markets to accessory stores. Just window-shopping will be an interesting experience. You might even find exotic foods that you have never seen before. Why not explore the street while enjoying a sata andagi Okinawan doughnut?
