Hatoma Island

Hatomajima lighthouse

A lapis lazuli color island surrounded by coral reefs where we enjoy a relaxed sense of time.

It is located on 5km distant of north of Iriomote and the northernmost of Taketomi town. A group of Milk bush which is surrounded by coral reefs at the north side of the island is especially wonderful. Hatomanakamori which is sung in a stanza of Hatoma tune is the highest point of 33.8m above sea level in the island. There are a beacon (tomi) with stonework and Hatomajima lighthouse on the top of the mountain. Time goes particularly slowly on a non-sightseeing island, which gives uswe will have a quiet, and peaceful and healing moment.
