This morning you will head to the small but quiet and beautiful Taketomi Island. As you walk along the white sand paths connecting the pavilions in this resort village, you will remember that Taketomi is one of few areas in Japan where the scenery itself has been preserved since ancient times. Today you will join a small group to cycle around Taketomi Island. You will later ride on a buffalo cart. The transportation from Ishigaki island to Taketomi Island takes 10 minutes by high-speed ferry.
