Amazing experience of traditional Yaeyama Islands

Reviewed by: Chris, 2016/04/13

Well organized tour showcasing the nature (mangroove forests) and the old cultural traditions (Taketomi village) of the Yaeyama archipelago. Plenty of time spent in each destination. Good and filling lunch. The buffalo cart trips in particular were fun, with the handlers singing traditional songs and the occasional "traffic jam" caused by a buffalo or two stopping along the way.

It was a large tour, with checking in and change of group/buses after hotel pickup required at the ferry terminal, and much of the time spent at Taketomi spent on my own, so do pay extra attention if you cannot understand Japanese, as, as described, the tour is entirely in Japanese.

Overall, very good value for money, and was a great way to get to see and experience the islands on my stay there.
