Belonging to the Okinawa Islands and part of the town of Kumejina, Kume Island is a hotbed for tourism and has a permanent population of just over eight thousand people. The port is situated roughly one hundred kilometres away from Okinawa’s capital of Naha, with two ferry crossings per day, though the times have been known to vary depending on the weather conditions. Many visitors make the crossing to experience the incredible white sand beaches, highly regarded diving opportunities and the delicious local food.
History lovers will have no shortage of fascinating sites to enjoy: the Uegusuku Castle Ruins are a particular highlight due to the views achieved there, and if the weather isn’t too pleasant there is a museum to visit whilst sheltering from the rain. For those not keen on history, there is a tropical fish pool which is found away from the prominent tourist spots.
To get around the island there is an affordable if unreliable bus system, that transports passengers to the vast majority of the popular areas. Next to the port, passengers will find a rental car company, offering visitors the chance to experience the area at their own leisure. The port generally has a crossing departing in the morning and in the evening, though it is advisable to check for live updates closer to the time.
