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.

  • This is the only ferry crossing in Ishigaki, it's not very big, there's a guest center nearby, there's a small shop and hand washing room on the side, and it's a pastime waiting for a boat.

  • It takes about 15 minutes by high-speed boat from Ishigaki Port. When you get off the boat, you'll find rental bicycles and buffalo carts lined up, so you should talk to them where you're interested. However, there were a lot of people on board, and it was not possible to get over, and the temporary flight came out.

  • The colour of the water is so inviting, the port is convenient and comfortable with indoor seating and breath taking views.
  • This is the entrance of the island. It is very peaceful and nice place. There are interesting spots on the side of the building, you hear an echo, so try to go!
