Truthfully, I am not really a fan of strip malls with the exception of Barclay’s court in Urasoe City.

For one, the Starbucks opens at 6:50 am compared to a lot of the other Starbucks in Okinawa that open at 9 am. The only drawback is that they do not have WI-FI. The Daiso (100 Yen store) is one of my favorites. For some reason (to me) it has a better selection of Japanese servingware (plasticware, teapots, cups) made in Japan. Just check the labels because everything is mixed with a large selection that are made in China too.

I also recommend going to the kaitan sushi place called Uokura. There are a few on the island, but I think this is one of the nicer ones. It is on the opposite side of the parking lot from the BEST. The atmosphere is relaxed for a revolving/conveyer belt sushi and it is reasonably priced. I recommend the あぶり (aburi) salmon. It’s lightly grilled on each side.

One of the best parts about Barclay’s court is the hidden thrift store inside the BEST electronics store called Jumble Store. Usually when I go in a thrift store in Japan I never want to by anything because it’s too expensive and not worth it. When I go into Jumble Store, I usually find things I like for a reasonable price. Not to say it’s as cheap as Goodwill in the States, but there are a lot of name brands and a large selection to comb through.

There are plenty of places to eat in Barclay’s court for cheap. CoCo Curry, Italian Tomato Cafe Jr. MosBurger, and the affordable yakiniku chain Gyu-Kaku are all in Barclay’s Court.

Others say it is in Urasoe.  It is located next to the American Consulate in Urasoe located in Urasoe City on Route 241 just west of the intersection of Route 330 and Route 241.

    • If you are looking for a Japanese PS4 i would go to Yamada or Manga Souku. There are two Yamadas that I know of, one across the street from Ashibina and one near the Awase Aeon. There are 3 Manga Souku stores on island. One is a few miles straight out the legion gate of Camp Foster on the left next to Comprehensive Park. The other is down the 58 in front of Camp Kinser. The third is near the Airport.

  1. I have never been to this shopping center. I will take the directions in the comment above that are from Kinser and modify them for you for coming from Foster/Lester. If you are coming from Foster (Commissary Gate)or Lester you would take a left out of the gate onto 58 South heading towards Naha. You will stay on 58 for quite a ways and then turn left onto Hwy 34. You will then turn right onto Route 241 and the complex will be on your right next to the US Consulate. Hope you find it! Gotta head there myself now 🙂
