AV, as we in Okinawa call American Village for short, is the hub of the Chatan area. It sits in a very central area between 2 large US military installations right on the waterfront. It has tons of restaurants, shopping, arcades, bowling, go-carton, etc so...More

The town is pretty catered towards tourism but don't let that put you off! It has good shops and restaurants as well as a convenient spot to watch the sunset. Most hotels are located opposite the village or even in the village itself so taking...More

While visiting a friend I was able to go for a scenic run every morning through American Village. Loved it! There's plentiful of restaurants, bars, a mall, and even an arcade there. It's a nice area to go for a walk/run and roam around. Enjoy

Apart from the pretty lights at night, Ferris wheel and some of the shops I didn't find this place that interesting. I guess it's main appeal is the American theme. Stayed for a short walk, ate Blue Seal ice cream and enjoyed a quick ramen...More

Nice place, but i hate when the center of the place has to be a parkinglot. Why cant people walk a bit so that the area could be more compact. Now the cars take a lot of Nice shopping and restaurant area.

Ideal place to relax with friends and family, with lots of restaurants and shops. The mood is cheerful and very american, but a lot of Okinawa people go there to enjoy the evening.

It's a nice place to walk around, but full of shops selling overpriced, junky souvenirs. We enjoyed having a place to stroll around after dinner, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to stop here.
