Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Okinawa Prefecture / Yaeyama-gun / Taketomi-cho / Taketomi-jima / Taketomi Port
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.
