In the North Valley, there are US military bases in Kadena, the largest air force base in Japan, and most of the nearby American families live in the vicinity. Due to the needs of the US military, the Mihama area not far from the base has become a bustling commercial district, which is now the American village. The iconic building in the American village is a 50-meter-diameter Ferris wheel. You must remember to take a photo.
