Water Buffalo Cart Rides
My parents and the kids do not know how to cycle, so we booked them on the water Buffalo Cart Rides which is a must do on Taketomi island. Luckily they had the whole cart to themselves. According to my sister they went around the village while the driver sang a song along and playing on their sanshin (Okinawan stringed instrument). The kids really enjoyed this experience.
Cycling around Taketomi
While the kids and elders hoped on the Water Buffalo Cart, the kidults all hopped onto a bike. We chose our own bikes and they all had a basket on the front for putting our belongings there. It was pretty hard cycling on sand at some p[arts of the island, and be prepare to think where to cycle to or you will be going in circles. There are cars coming by once in a while so stay alert! Sunglasses and hats/caps are recommended to protect you from blazing sun.
