A tiny island in the Yae-yama archipelago, Taketomi-jima enjoys popularity as a beach getaway, best known for its stretches of "star sand"--sand made up of tiny star-shaped exoskeletons of ancient fossils. Sightseeing on Taketomi-jima can include a walk along its streets lined with traditional red-roofed houses, or taking a ride in a water-buffalo cart. Laid-back, quiet, and untouched by recent developments, the island doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment, but the scenic beaches, picturesque sunsets, and freshly caught shrimp may be all you need. To arrange what you want to do in Taketomi-jima, use our Japan trip itinerary planning app.
