Conveniently situated near Kencho-Mae monorail station, probably about 3-minute walk away, Hotel Sun Okinawa (3*) boasts its spacious public bath. It's also an easy walk to the famed Kokusai Street with its eclectic mix of stores and restaurants.
Assorted Stuff #1
The Japanese food was alright, but nothing to rave about. I found the grilled mackerel and shishamo (Japanese capelin) moist, while the stir-fried vegetables were sweet, but a tad too wet for my liking. I finally had the chance to eat nattou (Japanese fermented soybeans) with rice again early in the morning.
Assorted Stuff #2
The food from the Western section was so-so, except for the macaroni salad with mayonnaise and the sweet corn potage. The scrambled eggs weren't that velvety, while the potato wedges were somewhat cold and soggy.
Orange & Yogurt
That was my very first time seeing a cup of thick yogurt by Yakult, having a consistency akin to dou hua (Chinese soybean pudding). It tasted pleasant without being sour at all, going well with brown sugar and cornflakes that I added for fun. The orange was of adequate freshness.
Iced Coffee, Orange Juice & Yakult
I really love iced coffee. With just a little bit of milk and simple syrup, I had two cups of it that morning. The pulpy orange juice, along with the Yakult drink, was nicely chilled.

Pika's advice: Not related to food, but do enjoy soaking your lethargy away in the stone bath. Below is a a shot of the lively Kokusai Street before it got more crowded after sunset.
I also had the chance to look at how the production of the famous sweet potato pie.
