Feb.

The island is located midway between Ishigaki Island and Miyako Island. It has a flat ovular shape and is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs. The inland areas have an abundance of sugar cane fields. While there are many historical sites for tourists to see, one attraction is the Utaki (a sacred place in the Okinawan language) where a god of safe navigation is enshrined. The island is also known as the Island of Folk Performing Arts, because many traditional folk performances have been handed down from generation to generation.
