What To Expect

If ever you find yourself in the famous prefecture of Okinawa, Japan, it'd be wise to take half a day off to explore the humble island of Taketomi. This island is known for its pristine natural sights, glistening white sand, and traditional but charming Okinawan houses. With a population of roughly 300 people, this quaint and quiet location is rustic in a way that it does not look like the other places you've been to in Okinawa. It's almost like stepping into another world and time away from the one you're so used to. On this island, see sprawling gardens filled with beautiful flowers and wooden or stone homes guarded by red painted figures. Your trip to Taketomi will begin with a departure from your meet up location, only a 10-15 minute ride from Ishigaki. Depending on which package you'll select, begin with either a bus tour around the city or a glass bottom boat tour, where you can marvel at an underwater world below you and see various species of incredible sea life. Then, after your bus/boat tour, head to a water buffalo cart pulled by, yes, a real water buffalo! Go around Taketomi and relish the unpolluted air and preserved surroundings. You'll be given some free time of around 30-40 minutes to wander this otherworldly island on your own, wherein you can take photos of its strange and old beauty. Head to Taketomi Port where you'll be taken back to Ishigaki. Return to your accommodation on your own or opt to take the shuttle to the included drop off destinations.

  • Chun Hung 13 Dec 2018
    Good to have all three elements in the package. Quite difficult to find the starting point, but after that it was very smooth. The people there are very nice and helpful
  • Piu wa 12 Sep 2018
    We joined the tour because it states in the activity description there is English audio device. However, the guide only speaks Japanese and there is no English audio device. We do not understand Japanese at all. It was boring for us.
  • Wai Hoi Dominic 17 Jan 2019
    A very full half-day tour. Although there is no tour guide, the instructions given by the company in advance are also very clear. The price set at klook is not far from the local order.

    The trip is very good! When the ticket is redeemed, the staff will introduce the details. On the same day, the staff will pick up the card from the dock after the ship is disembarked. Although they do not know Japanese, they have English notes and are very popular!

    The time is arranged in the afternoon, very good. There is a local staff pick-up and arrangement for each attraction, and the free time given is also sufficient! Zhufu Island is really beautiful!
