Monument of The Southernmost Part of Japn, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho
(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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."

  • Way of the Dragon was covered with stones of the 47 prefectures. A small monument had left students to explore the old one seems to be. If you come here, make sure photo take want to will!

  • It is not the southernmost monument and stone lined but not particularly long place. I'd take pictures because the summer is really hot. More starry sky at night, but in other places of the island well?

  • Hateruma Island, Yaeyama Islands. Japan's southernmost monument erected in Japan's southernmost inhabited island it's surprisingly built by the hands of the individual. It was built by students from the South traveled in Okinawa will be refunded before 1970. Thought beliefs in this monument is very reason anyway believing these are interesting I think. To hardened as well as several monuments have been erected, the intricacies of postwar Okinawa's position of locationsabcdglobal registriesabcdglobal registriesabcdnetwork is could not help.
