Kuro Island

At a glance

Kuro Island is also known as ""Heart Island"" because it appears to be shaped like a heart when viewed from the air. Here, the cattle outnumber the local population by a wide margin, as most of the island outside its five villages is pasture land where Ishigaki-gyu and Matsuzaka-gyu cattle brands are raised and sent back to the mainland. The island's lively Cow Festival held every February attracts a large number of visitors from outside the prefecture, perhaps because the festival has a drawing to win your very own head of cattle.
Kuro Island is also the only livestock market in Taketomi Town, with auctions held on the 13th of every other month.
The street leading from the centrally located Agarisuji community to the Port of Kuroshima is lined with redbrick homes and it was voted as one of Japan's 100 most picturesque streets. The island is relatively flat, making it a good day trip destination that can easily be seen on a rental bicycle. If you don't have the stamina for a rigorous bike ride, why not rent a motorcycle instead.
