Monument of The Southernmost Part of Japn, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho
(4.6/5 based on 140+ 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."

  • W was surprised to this great monument did not only was familiar in Japan's southernmost monument. I think it is the perfect place to photograph. However, Hateruma Island, less shadow, cycling under the blazing sun, the photo is quite hard so look out.

  • I use 11-Ishigaki Island. I hastily went to hadn't decided to go at all, so we day trips from the harbour at Hateruma island. Very hot, nice weather darn well even though it was 11 months. Sea is very clean and there were a lot of coral. I want to also go

  • I'd introduced in the Internet. It is a monument located in located in Japan's southernmost inhabited island, Hateruma-Jima (haterumajima), Nagasaki takana (takanazaki) in the. From Ishigaki Island every day fast ship any location but don't know what happened to be good weather. It was the best views!
