Experience Taketomi Island in Its Purest Form
Immerse yourself in the idyllic island life at this traditional yet luxurious Ryukyu resort
HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island is a resort imbued with rich cultural heritage, located on Taketomi Island in Okinawa’s Yaeyama region. The white coral sand paths, red tile-roofed pavilions, and gukku stone walls for privacy were built to match the style of the local residences, making every visitor an islander during their stay.
For a taste of authentic local culture, start your day with an exclusive island tour aboard a wagon drawn by a water buffalo. Back at the resort, take a shamisen lesson or make your very own shisa—one of the lion-like stone guardians atop walls and roofs throughout the area. Visit the nearby Iriomote and Yubu Islands, where, with luck, you may see a rare Iriomote cat or crested serpent eagle in Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park. Or, of course, simply relax on the beach.
Lavish dining is an indispensable part of any vacation, and HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island’s exclusive French-Okinawa fusion dishes are sure to delight, with locally sourced ingredients and traditional island herbs attractively served on plates and bowls fashioned by an Okinawan pottery master.
From Haneda Airport, take a flight to Ishigaki Airport (about 180 minutes). From Ishigaki Airport, take a taxi to Ishigaki Port (about 30 minutes) and then take the ferry to Taketomi Port (about 10 minutes). From Taketomi Port, take the free shuttle bus to the resort (about 8 minutes).
