How to Get There

Taketomi Island is a short ferry ride from Ishigaki Island .

Three ferry companies operate between the islands, departing every 30 minutes. It takes about 10 minutes by high-speed ferry, and 15 minutes by car ferry each way.

Quick Facts

Taketomi Island is a traditional Ryukyu-style village

The main way to get around the area is by water buffalo

Kondoi Beach is the most popular beach on the island

The Okinawan way of life

A 15-minute walk from the ferry port will bring you to the village, a beautifully preserved example of traditional Okinawan architecture.

Walk the sunbaked streets among the single-story houses—surrounded by stone walls and covered with red tiled roofs—and you'll soon be swept away by the beauty of the Okinawan landscape. Look for statues of shisa, which are half lion and half dog, and guard in pairs against evil spirits.

Where the buffalo roam

The best way to see the village is by water buffalo. Take a 30-minute tour of the village in a traditional rig pulled by a buffalo while your guide serenades you on the sanshin, a three-stringed instrument similar to the Japanese shamisen.

Spectacular sunsets

The best beach on the island is Kondoi Beach, on the western side. It's a 15-minute walk from the central village. You can also cycle there. There are several bicycle rental shops on the island.

With soft sands, emerald waters and plentiful facilities, the beach is the perfect place to spend a few relaxing hours. Watch the spectacular sunsets here before heading back to Ishigaki Island.

Getting to and from the port

Buffalo tour operators and bicycle rental outlets offer free shuttle services from the ferry port to the village and back. Otherwise, it's a 15-minute walk.
