For those of you out there who are serious about outdoor sports, and I do mean serious, NEOS should be on your list of places to check out. NEOS, Nature Earth Ocean Space, is a store located not far from Ginowan Convention Center.
On the first floor you will find a variety of high quality hiking and outdoors type garments to include shoes, rain gear, hiking shirts, pants and headgear. There are also a variety of backpacks, tents and such.
The second floor has a large variety of equipment for mountain biking and water sports. This also includes children’s basic swim equipment and life vests.
NEOS is a great place for the serious outdoorsman, however, it is not the place for a person looking for low cost of discounted stuff. (If you’re reading this and looking for more basic or discounted goods check out Sports Depot.)
Overall I love this place and would certainly call it my go-to place for everything I need to spend some quality time in Okinawa’s crystal clear ocean or mountains.
