Nagomino Tower

Cheapo Article: Taketomi: Bicycles, Water Buffalo and Beaches
Address: [map]

Although it may appear to be a slightly precarious concrete tower reminiscent of fire-station practice buildings. this tower offers the only full view of the village on the island. Perched on top of Akayama Hill which was once the site of King akayama’s castle, you can enjoy the views and try not to fall off! (It is closed on windy days, and although no one has been injured yet, be careful).
