Taketomi is a serene island located in the Okinawa Prefecture of Japan. Noted for its traditional Okinawan houses and preserved Ryukyuan heritage, it offers a tranquil atmosphere far from bustling urban life.

Mobility and Car Rental

Given the small size of the island, renting a compact or economy car is recommended. Parking lots are available at the ferry terminal and most popular sites. A speed limit of 40 km/h applies throughout the island, except for certain areas where the limit is 20 km/h. Please note that driving is on the left side of the road, in line with the rest of Japan.

Hot Tip:

If you'd like to ride a bike around the island - it's the local way of getting around. So, consider including a bike rack as a rental car feature.

Must-Visit Places

  • Nagomi-no-tō: The sand tower believed to bring happiness and peace.
  • Aiyaruhama Beach: Known for its star-sand, a perfect place for swimming and snorkeling.
  • Taketomi Folk Craft Museum: Showcases traditional crafts and artifacts.

Neighborhoods

Taketomi Island is made up of only one village, also named Taketomi. The village is home to a few hundred residents and gives a glimpse into the slow-paced, traditional Okinawan lifestyle.

Climate and Seasonal Events

Taketomi enjoys a heavenly subtropical climate, making it a pleasant destination almost throughout the year. The island showcases the traditional Ryukyu culture through various seasonal events. One of the most celebrated events is the annual Taketomi Mura Matsuri festival in November, where traditional folk performances, parades, and music bring the village to life.

Money Matters

The currency used is the Japanese Yen (¥). Major credit cards are accepted at hotels and larger establishments, but you might need cash at smaller venues and for transport fares.

Leaving the Island

Although the island doesn't have an airport, the nearby Ishigaki Airport, which is just a short ferry ride away, connects Taketomi with other parts of Japan.
