Enjoy the Yaeyama nightscape from a historic pier


The West Pier is the perfect place for observing the evening sun. It is located on the western side of the central settlement of Taketomi Island, and is visited by many people around sunset which produces the beautiful view every second. The pier was built in 1938, and was originally used by people crossing over from Taketomi Island (which had no arable land of its own) to cultivate rice plants on other islands, such as Iriomote Island and Yubu Island. It was used as an actual working pier until around 1970, but today it has become a tourist spot.
