It comes as no surprise that Taramajima is such a hotspot for vacationers from across the globe; the surrounding region is criss-crossed with great attractions. Shimojishima and Irabu are just two of the many other places you may wish to visit while you're in Okinawa.
Visitors seeking out those special places of quiet contemplation, will relish visiting some of the region's temples. Uncover the region's rich cultural fabric at Okinawa 's nature museums, art museums and theaters.
For those who like to get wet, this is a great place for watersports. Wind surfing is popular with the locals and another option is fishing. Why don't you relax and enjoy during fun activities such as cycling or camping. Both are well-loved options for both visitors and locals alike.
World travelers know that eating what the locals eat is one of the most rewarding ways to uncover a destination's personality. Rafute (stewed pork belly) and soki (stewed pork ribs) are much-loved dishes to taste.
One of the delights of world travel is employing new languages, so take the time to pick up some Japanese during your time in Taramajima. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" is the Japanese way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" And "Benjo wa doko desu ka?", which means "Where's the toilet?"
All good things come to an end, but be rest assured, when it's time to leave Okinawa, you'll have many special photos and memories to keep forever.
