Kokusai Street or International Street is often called the "Heartbeat of Okinawa" because of the crowds that flock here. The street is lined with hotels, retail stores, malls, souvenir shops, bars and restaurants.
We walked up and down the street, peeked into shops and window shopped. It was hot as blazes, so we stopped for a break and got a bite to eat and enjoyed cold beers in the shade. Guys were providing us with street music for entertainment in addition to watching the people pass by.
