Living A Fun Time For Everyone At The Naha Bus Terminal?

Places and things to do in Okinawa if you have more time on your typical itinerary to explore all to see
Going on a shopping spree; saving money at the 100 yen store; trying new foods and exotic fruit drinks; getting brain freeze with roll ice cream; oh, and finishing that overdue term paper at the library—all things you can do at the Naha Bus Terminal!

Naha Bus Terminal entrance

While from the outside, this may appear to be an ordinary old bus terminal with buses coming and going.

Though once you enter, you will find out there's much more than meets the eye and you can actually have a pretty great time here, by yourself, with a group, or even with your entire family.

Naha OPA entrance

The second and third floor of the bus terminal host Naha OPA, a shopping mall comprised of men's and women's fashion stores, cosmetics, lifestyle shops, and a food court of sorts with cafes and restaurants.

CosmeKitchen - An all organic cosmetics store

You can shop until you drop at places such as ABC MART, a shoe store; Billabong; and CosmeKitchen for all of your natural and organic makeup needs.

A large Daiso, a 100 yen store

However, if you're the thrifty type, you can head on up to the 3rd floor to fill up basket loads of goodies at Daiso, the 100 yen store!

You might have noticed that the 3rd floor is also home to the enormous three-floor Okinawa Prefectural Library. If by chance that you're a bookworm or just want a quiet place to study, this library is the place to be.

You can use one of many tables or desks strewn about the library—or even the quiet room—to set up and hit the books, all the while using the provided free Wi-Fi to finish up that homework that you've been putting off.

Okinawa Prefectural Library kid's area

Bring the kids along as well as there is a kid-friendly area too. Our daughter loves to go here and pick out the weirdest books to check out. Though, your children can always use the kid's space to flip through some books.

While the selection of children's English books is quite small, your kids will still enjoy the areas provided so that they can open a new world through their imagination by reading.

The American Corner on the 4th floor of the library has very few English books, but it does provide an excellent area to study and some decent views if you choose a window seat. Additionally, it's conveniently close to the water fountains and restrooms if you plan on staying a while.

Naha OPA - Poke Stop

After all that studying at the library, head on back to OPA to grab yourself a Poke bowl from Poke Stop or to try out some other great foods!
