Finding a church when you first arrive on Okinawa is not an easy task and can take several months, if not longer, to accomplish.  On the other hand, finding a Christian book store, with a small selection of faith-based books in English, is a whole lot easier!

Next time you are out lunching at this popular noodle shop, aka SomChai’s, or shopping for a wonderfully scented gift from here, or desiring a beautiful, one-of-a-kind-in-Okinawa dress for your next social funtion here, then make sure you stop at this little store tucked away on Park Ave.  My friend, Hillary, went out on a date night with her hubs recently to Fertile for dinner and then they walked along Park Ave.  They stopped into this shop and enjoyed talking with some of the locals there.

Special Note:  This store takes Yen and credit cards only.

Hours:  Monday – Saturday 11:00p.m. – 7:00p.m. (Closed on Sunday)

Location:  Chuo Park Ave. (Use to be referred to as B.C. Street)

Contact info:  098-929-3776 or www.okinawacbs.com (All in Japanese but a great referral for your local friends.)

Directions:  Leave out of Kadena Gate Two and follow to the large intersection and make a left.  You are now on 330.  Make another left at the building “Hide Away”.  You are now on Chuo Park Ave.  The book-gift store isn’t very far down on your right.  There is a sandwich board outside with mostly Kanji on it but the word book store is in English.  You can also park at the Korinza Mall (Y100 store inside) and walk down Chuo Park Ave. – store will then be on your left.

    What a cute little shop. Maybe I could get something Japanese to send to my mother. Thanks for the post! And the recommendations of places around to check out.

    Whether it’s for a special love one or maybe just for you, our gifts will touch the heart and remind you of God’s perfect love. Our Gifts display your faith and let those around you know that you are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. A gift that can encourage and touch the heart makes such a wonderful gift.

    Went looking for it and did not find it. I am pretty sure it is no longer open.
