Aragusuku Island (Kamiji)

At a glance

Aragusuku Island is situated 4 km to the west of Kuro Island and it consists of two islands called Kamiji and Shimoji. Both islands can be reached from one another on foot during low tide and for this reason they are called Panari or Panari Island, which literally means ""separate island."" There is no regular ferry service to Aragusuku Island, but Kamiji Island has a small village and is known its traditional religious ceremonies and rituals that cannot be photographed. Known for its legend of mermaids, the island was also once home to a large number of saltwater manatees. In the distant past the meat of saltwater manatees was offered to the Ryukyu government in place of the head tax, and today there is a shrine that stands dedicated to these sea creatures.
Roads in the village are not paved, but they are well maintained. Also, visitors need to be aware that there are many sacred sites that are off limits to the general public. The island does have accommodations, but individuals are not allowed to visit the island alone unless they take part in one of the tours offered from hotels on Ishigaki Island, Kuro Island, Iriomote Island, or Kohama Island, or ask to charter a boat to take them there.
The island has no stores, so visitors should buy food and water before they go.
