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.

    From Ishigaki Island on the ferry will arrive in about 15 minutes. After he got to rent a bike for the bike shop car aboard. Reservation is not required. Rent a bicycle and explore the island! If you two hours, in terrible! Taketomi Island sand roads and stone walls, unique to the atmosphere. Personally, I think, in an indescribable in the Ishigaki Island and the other islands are featured! Come have the time, so feel free to go! In a so-so ride a bike, so wear comfortable clothes!

    The colour of the water is so inviting, the port is convenient and comfortable with indoor seating and breath taking views.
