Kokusai Street

Our last stop on the Saturday outing was Naha's famed Kokusai Street, the place where the Esai Drum Festival was held during my first week on the island.   I was fortunate to find a place to park my little car - a small parking garage that I encountered while driving down an alley the wrong direction.. We walked about six blocks up Kokusai Street, through a continuing throng of small businesses and street vendors, to a small brewery for our evening meal.

Kokusai Street is a very busy place.  It would take a full day to adequately explore it as well as the cavernous indoor (almost underground) market mall that opens onto the street.
