Taketomi Island

Taketomi is a small island which lies just a few miles to the southwest of Ishigaki. It only takes about 10 – 15 minutes to get there by ferry and the return trip costs as little as ¥1100. This has made it an extremely popular day-trip destination and with the exception of Ishigaki it is by far the most visited of Yaeyama’s islands. There’s no real need to plan a journey to Taketomi in advance; Just arrive at the terminal, hop on the next ferry and enjoy a few hours exploring the island’s sights and beaches.
