Taketomi Island is in the Yaeyama island chain, 300 km south-west of Okinawa’s main island. Taketomi town is well-known for distinctive rows of traditional red-roofed houses, built using an architectural style that dates back to a time when the islands were a separate entity to Japan and ruled by the Ryūkyū Kingdom.
