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.

Payment:  This store takes Yen and credit cards only.

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

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

Address:  1 Chome-56-2 Makiminato, Urasoe-shi, Okinawa-ken 901-2131, Japan

GPS Coordinates: 26.2670862, 127.71972890000006

Directions:  The Christian Bookstore has relocated off 58. If coming from Kadena area it’s on the left a few meters pass Arin Krin aka “the garlic house” and next to the Nissan car dealer. It’s a small white building (turn on side street just pass the building) and Parking in the rear. Very nice store and employees speak some English. Was able to find exactly what I was looking for.

      Thanks Jessica – I’ve attempted to find the address and GPS coordinates on Google Maps and have added this information to the post. If I have located it incorrectly please let me know!

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

    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.

    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.
