Taketomi Port, Taketomi-jima Taketomi-cho

Tour a traditional village island on a wagon pulled by a water buffalo starting from Taketomi Port, terminus of the 15-minute ferry ride from Ishigaki Port. Located on a coral atoll island and surrounded by a long coral reel, the port offers great seabed sightseeing opportunities with glass-bottom boats. Admire a carefully preserved Ryukyu village with stone-walled, one-story houses and traditional gardens, guarded from evil by lion-dog statues perched on red-tiled roofs. A number of home-style restaurants provide great local food, and shops offer locally made handicrafts.

  • Port of the Islands most easily accessible from Ishigaki Island is the size of the Yaeyama mountains one. It is very easy to use because the ship is coming at a pace of 30 minutes. When the ship came to have announcements within the Terminal. Common in Yaeyama port, each port for each Monument, so take pictures to commemorate the landing!

  • Without thinking about what that has landed in Taketomi Island, Harbor bicycle shop Ms tour van was waiting. Reservation without a bicycle OK, bang on, could take to the shop. Service is also sent to the port.

  • Buffalo car, red-tiled houses and colorful on the roof system-but next time I come by night and day by bicycle.

  • The colour of the water is so inviting, the port is convenient and comfortable with indoor seating and breath taking views.
  • Or location of Harbour, easy-to-use toilets. I've purchased at Ishigaki Island terminal facility in the Terminal, so it is safe
