Taketomi Island (Taketomi-jima) is an island located in the Yaeyama Islands in Okinawa Prefecture. It belongs to Taketomi - cho, Yaeyama - gun, Okinawa Prefecture. From Ishigakijima which is the center of Yaeyama, it is located a distance of about 10 minutes (about 6 km) by a high speed ship.
Isn't it an island that is perfect for "Okinawa that many people image" appearing on television and drama such as red tile roof private houses and buffalo cars?
In 1987 it was designated as the important traditional structure group preservation district of the country. For movement and sightseeing in the island, rental cycle, mini bus, water buffalo car etc are recommended. In the case of bicycles, attention is necessary because there are unpaved roads.
