Marina Nature / Park
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.

  • In about 15 minutes by ferry from Ishigaki Island, arrived on the island. Increases the transparency of the sea and beautiful. Buffalo car and bike rental free courtesy car is waiting to arrive, so having to book is fine.

  • Glass-bottomed boat took advantage this time from Taketomi port has become indebted over again. I think it was 1200 Yen in 25 minutes. Time is also so easy to get seasick and watching the bottom feels kinda short, but just the right time. High degree of transparency and also a lot of fish. You might determine that? because I think is a glass-bottomed boat ride that many times less in one trip where boat is the best. Boat was just before departure that during this very idea in Taketomi Island, rode on a whim.

  • Waiting for the full side touts bicycles and water buffalo put together at time of the ship. Also borrowed the same kanji as let's aboard the bus because I heard so much worry.

  • 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
