Why I went there: My girlfriend needed a dress for her brother’s wedding.

Why it’s a big deal: My girlfriend got so excited she made a squealing noise when we walked. She said this store is really good and reminds her of Macy’s.

What I thought of it: I mostly sat there and played video games on my iPhone, but I also thought the store had a large selection with fair prices.

  1. If you are coming from Kadena, it’s a little easier to go down the 58 Ginowan bypass and make the left directly in front of the convention center’s main entrance. The store will be on your right hand side up the hill. Great selection of dresses!

  2. Graet store ladies! They also do alterations on the spot when you by there. It seems much closer to Futenma so look for “Mashika” sign (pass the north Mashika sign) right after you pass the base. Great customer service also. Dresses reange from 3900 yen to 20000 yen. My dress was 7900 yen which was under my ball budget.
