Okinawa’s appetite for more shopping continues with the opening of a new shopping mall near Camp Kinser.

SAN-A Urasoe West Coast PARCO CITY made its debut in June in Irijima, Urasoe City bringing with it over 250 stores. It is thought to be one of the biggest shopping malls on the island with 14.83 acres of floorspace.

Among the 250 stores of Parco City, 94 are reported to open in Okinawa for the first time, including brands such as ZARA (to open in August), GUESS, ARMANI EXCHANGE, THE NORTH FACE+, Tommy Jeans, LEGO, HMV, and Panda Express. There is also a Namco arcade featuring VR games.

Commuters should expect heavy traffic on the Nishikaigan Douro (Nishikaigan Road) and Route 58, near Camp Kinser, especially over weekends.
