Take a round-trip ferry from Ishigaki to Taketomi and experience the island’s traditional Okinawan culture at your own pace. After a water buffalo cart ride through sandy streets, you can do one of the following independent activities: spend a relaxing day overlooking turquoise waters at Kondoi Beach, or explore the island's handicraft shops and local eateries by bicycle. Ferries depart and return throughout the day, so you can choose how long you spend on the island.
