The area is accessible with Yui Rail as well with local buses and rental cars.

In Okinawa’s old song, the word “Omoro” means peace and prosperity in the village.

Soon after the war, Okinawa has been under America’s governance, and its land has been developed for the U.S. military facilities. In the 80′s, the city began its redevelopment, and gained its popularity that it has right now.
The meaning behind the name of the city represents Okinawa’s peace and its bright future.

Omoromachi, a place where you can enjoy shopping, and have a taste of Okinawa’s history.
