The Takara Residence

Over one hundred years of homespun charm

The Takara Residence is a beautifully preserved example of Okinawan architecture, built at the end of the 19th century. Step inside to appreciate the subtle details of the interior and take a look at the collection of handmade furniture. The thick walls surrounding the residence are made from coral limestone, a traditional type of wall construction typical of the Okinawan islands. Because of its significant cultural value, the Takara Residence is designated an Important Cultural Property of Japan.

Take a stroll through the unpaved alleys and winding pathways around the Takara Residence and enjoy Gerumajima Island's slow pace of life.
