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.

Taketomi Port reviews
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!
