Monument of The Southernmost Part of Japn, Hateruma-jima

#2 of 15 in Things to do in Hateruma-jima
On the distant island of Hateruma, facing a deep and seemingly endless ocean, you'll find Monument of The Southernmost Part of Japn. With the main monument built by the village of Taketomi to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war, the rugged and weathered coastline boasts a number of other interesting monuments. You'll find one built by students who were working on the island and used their pay to finance their own monument, as well as a snaking stone path leading to the monoliths, each stone of which is said to represent "a cornerstone of our country."

  • We finally reached the monument in the southernmost part of Japan on Hateruma Island, which was shaken by a seasick ferry. The place where i was able to walk between the storms was the rock surface of a rugged coral reef, and here was a cape that seemed to be the southernmost point of the storm.
