Nishi Pier, Taketomi-jima

Take a walk out above the water on Nishi Pier for an impressive view of the shoreline and sea. The simple strip of concrete leading out from a remote beach blends in with the landscape, allowing the scenery to speak for itself. Walking out a few yards into the sea offers sights of different aquatic life at the edge of the pier, including sea cucumbers, shrimp, fish, crabs, and eels. With no facilities or businesses nearby, the pier remains a quiet place of relaxation and reflection in nature.

  • A game of history and culture. The environment is really beautiful, but the location is better than the time to step on the internet as one of the scenes

  • I came to see the sunset. Because the ground of the pier is cracked or is missing, a small child may be dangerous if it stumbles. It's a little dangerous because the sunset time is crowded with a lot of people, but you can see a glimpse of fish under the pier.

  • A place which is so secluded yet so famous. It was fun travelling there and seeing the clean sea waters for a change.
  • I came here to see Sunset. The silhouette of people by sunlight was so clear and beautiful. Noted on wonder-tips.
