Tarama Island

At a glance

Tarama Island is an elliptical shaped island situated almost exactly in between Miyako Island and Ishigaki Island. It is the 11th largest island in Okinawa Prefecture. Tarama Island sits atop a coral shelf, with its topography mostly flat and there are no rivers. The dialect spoken on Tarama Island is quite unique as islanders use certain syllables often not associated with Japanese. This makes reading the tourism signboards rather difficult as most contain rather unusual spellings.
The island is flat, making for easy bicycle rides. You can typically ride around the island in about 90 minutes on a bicycle. It is also good to know the roads are perfectly paved, which makes for an enjoyable bicycle ride amidst the expansive sugar cane fields.
Along the way you can spot free range cows and goats, which are a specialty item of Tarama Island. The highest point on the island is 32.8 meters at the Yaeyama Observatory to the north. This spot offers great panorama views of the entire island. Tarama Island's waters are also known for being crystal clear. Even people living on Miyako Island are impressed.
There are also many Utaki (sacred places) located around the village where ceremonies take place and the trees surrounding these sites are gigantic even compared to the Japanese mainland, providing a sacred and mysterious aura. The famous traditional event Hachigatsu-odori attracts many visitors from outside the prefecture for its dance performances and costumes, which can also be seen at the Tarama Village Ethnographic Learning Center.
The village has two relatively large supermarkets, so you can buy supplies locally without a problem.
