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.

    • 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
