Taketomi Port, Taketomi-jima

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.

  • Tourists go to the 10 o'clock in the morning and return around 15:00, so the ferry terminal at that time is a long line. Temporary chairs and other items are served in the aisles, but it's a good place to check the line a little early during the peak of the tourist season.

  • 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!
