Camp Foster has two temporary lodging facilities located nearby Building 1 and the Macaroni Grill restaurant. These facilities are the Westpac Inn and Westpac Lodge. The Inn is for bachelor unaccompanied guests. Typically most inbound families to Camp Foster stay at the Westpac Lodge http://www.mccsokinawa.com/lodging/ or Shogun Inn http://af.dodlodging.net/propertys/Kadena-AB (Kadena AFB).  An alternative that many overlook is the well managed Navy Gateway Inn on Kadena AFB http://ngis.dodlodging.net/propertys/Okinawa-CFA—Japan . Kadena AFB is a short and usually fast drive from Camp Foster depending on time of day and traffic.

Shopping

Foster ButlerExpress-001

The base has a large newly renovated exchange in building 1004 which offers an impressive selection of goods and services one would expect to find in any stateside department store. The main exchange building houses a small food court with a Subway and Taco Bell shop.

Foster Marketplace-001

Just next door and connected to the main store by covered walking path is the Camp Foster Marketplace (aka Mini Mall). The Marketplace rents store space to a multitude of local vendors which sell everything from furniture to souvenirs and clothing. This facility also has a barber shop, beauty shop, plaque shop, flower shop, optical center, garden store, Cinnabon, New Car Sales and cell phone dealers (AU and Softbank). If you need help mailing or packing all your purchases there is also a mail center/pack and wrap that can assist you for a small fee. Many of the vendors change out month to month so it is always worth stopping by to see what is new. There are also two Community Bank ATMs outside between the mini mall and Theatre.

Foster LibraryCommisary-001

Camp Foster has a large commissary. This particular commissary takes cash, credit, or debit and has convenient self-checkout lanes. There is also a deli, bakery, butcher onsite that one can order some fresh sushi or preorder a custom birthday cake.

  1. My husband and I spent a hour or more choosing a carpet to put in our home at the Foster Furniture Store. We paid for the carpet and set up the delivery service and were expecting the carpet tomorrow. Today we received a call from the store asking us to come in as they had lost our order slip. Upon arrival we were told that the man that did the transaction for us never put a sold sign on our carpet and it was already sold and out of the store. All the store offered was for us to pick a new carpet. Seriously?!?! No discount, no nothing except sorry we messed up pick a new one at the same price of the other one you already paid for. I am beyond furious and will never shop at this store again! Highly recommend you take your business elsewhere if you would like to take home the actual products you purchase!

  2. Update, tours plus is no longer between the bowling alley and commissary. It is now Sumo Burrito and a frozen yogurt shop. Tours plus is located near the theater in the Tsunami Gear sports shop. Semper Gumby! (always flexible)
