While it may be tempting to simply sit back and relax when visiting Kumejima, remember, Okinawa 's numerous scenic wonders are never more than a day trip away. Aguni, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the southwest, and Aka, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the west of Kumejima are good places to visit if you're keen on learning more about this region.
When you come to Kumejima, spend a few hours exploring Naha. Approximately 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the east, this regional transport and shopping hub is where you'll find Tamaudoun Site, Himeyuri Peace Museum and Naminouegu Shrine. Shuri Castle, Tsushima-maru Memorial Museum and Makishi Public Market are also worth a visit before returning to Kumejima.
Travelers who spend time exploring Okinawa enjoy discovering the wide range of farms, open-air museums and gardens dotted throughout the region. The best places for travelers to visit when they first arrive in a new destination are the ones that offer a window into the local culture. Don't skip Okinawa 's art galleries, history museums and palaces.
Finding one of the city walking tours, cycling tours and guided nature walks can be a good way to understand about Okinawa. This spot has a number of great places to enjoy wind surfing, so make sure you fit that into your itinerary. Fishing is another popular activity here.
When the time comes to return to the familiarity of home, you'll be bidding this special place a fond Sayōnara (farewell).
