Kokusai-dori (International Street)

One of the main streets in Naha, Okinawa's capital city. Between 1953 and 1975, Kokusai-dori (International Street) became the focal point of a city emerging from the ashes of the World War . Named after the Kokusai Gekijo, a popular movie theater in those days, Kokusai-dori is approximately 1.6 kilometers long, roughly the equivalent of one mile. The avenue represented Okinawa's rapid postwar reconstruction, and was often referred to as the "Miracle Mile."
