Okinawa’s Minatogawa Stateside Town 港川ステイツサイドタウン

The fashionable Minatogawa Stateside Town sits just outside of Camp Kinser. Previously military housing for off-base contractors, the neighborhood has been slowly winnowed by private development and today hosts a small collection of boutique restaurants and shops ($300 handmade jeans, anyone?). As with other parts of Okinawa, many of the tourists you see at Stateside Town are from mainland Japan and other parts of Asia.
