Monument of The Southernmost Part of Japn, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho

4.6
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho
On the distant island of Hateruma, facing a deep and seemingly endless ocean, you'll find Monument of The Southernmost Part of Japn. With the main monument built by the village of Taketomi to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war, the rugged and weathered coastline boasts a number of other interesting monuments. You'll find one built by students who were working on the island and used their pay to finance their own monument, as well as a snaking stone path leading to the monoliths, each stone of which is said to represent "a cornerstone of our country."

    (The first time 25 years ago, Typhoon, and canceled in a 2 second) ever tried twice but failed. In the challenge for the third time, we landed on Hateruma island! Participate in can travel's tours. 80-year-old mother gave me very happy. Finally arrived at the monument. Whatever? Smaller than I thought! Like a monument, made to part-time students living in Hokkaido, was a lovely size chest high. However, the best memories came to this land. Splendid monument built close to the Town Hall, but this is by far taste.

    Does not have a chance again on Hateruma island ferry cancellations often think, but when you go, go once. But during the day and around there is nothing so hot. No shade along the way and perhaps you rent a bike or scooter be hot on this without! I'm sure to watch sunsets and starry skies and beautiful I think.
