  • From Kume Island ago going didn't you care, go 1 go another year to go, go the other islands. If you stay at EEF Beach area even without a car, hardly any inconvenience! And return from the Kume-jima Island, always want to go back without tears mending my tearjerking is a desire! ★ very well recommend ★

  • I went from looking at guidebooks in the beautiful beach of beach and Kume Island in bad weather or beach and especially cloudy blue rather than gray, this is the local river levels.
