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

4.5
#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."

  • It is dangerous without a fence, and the careful rough waves. It was just so great. With children is attention. I think the southernmost monument is good for taking photos. Went by bicycle there far.

  • I went to the nearby. The cliffs where the feet, is in place simply by walking the pounding, to remind the suspense and drama.
