    Kume Island is the island from Okinawa from China to take 1 hour beyond the kerama Islands in a high-speed boat. The Pacific far from the island of Zamami. Thought on the small island of kumejima no kumesen distillery shochu is a famous collected more famous ones like no other from the. Kume Island seen from the plane has been transferred at this time was considerably large area. Try island-hopping in the car it takes around 1 hour and a half. Many people. There is a mountain. I was surprised too to be a very scenic island. During 1-week stay was at it too. Kerama Islands is spectacular, but have something very special to the beauty of this island. Ages inside Ford is not known through the sea bottom is white, sea blue mixture of bass clean. It will be this inland sea's deep and 10 m long. Mozuku field is expanded and blackish at the bottom of the White Sea. Mozuku consumed here is so thick, and we are eating mozuku and somen as hiyamugi. Very delicious. Food unique to the EEF Beach "Kiyose" that some stores. Once again visited the island you want.

Where to stay in Kumejima-cho

The main places to stay in Kumejima-cho lie on the main island of the same name. Lots of visitors opt for Eef Beach, a picturesque white sand spot and perhaps the most developed on the island; here, choose from luxury resorts, the occasional guesthouse, and some more standard, low-rise hotels. Another urban area to the west has a few pretty modest offerings, including simple hotels and family-run guesthouses. Travel throughout the island is easy, so you can head to remoter beaches when the mood strikes.
