Hateruma Island is famous for its Hateruma Blue and starry sky!
We took for the fastest ferry in the morning. The ferry to Hateruma was said to wave very much, so I was worried about seasickness, but the waves were calm and comfortable this day!
We rented an electric bike and explored the island. We wanted to borrow them until the evening of the next day, We rented two units for 5,000 yen for 30 hours! The rental shop's owner told us various recommendations of the island!
I think this is the most beautiful sea I've ever visited on many islands! If you are lucky, you can see sea turtles from the sea even if you do not enter the sea.
Since it was October, the sun was not to strong and the wind was so pleasant that I could spend about an hour.
After watching the sea, went to an early lunch. To the island's only vegan cafe, Kukuru Cafe. we ordered vegetarian curry and vegetarian taco rice for lunch. Curry was a spicy tomato-based flavor, and taco rice was light, so they maybe not enough to people who are not used to vegans food.
After the meal, we ordered three kinds of tofu cake, chocolate cake, cheese cake, raisin and okara cake. It's vegan, so it feels a little bit dry, but the taste is delicious!
After lunch. We went cycling the south side of the island! The southernmost cape was quite impressive!
This is a shaved ice shop parlor Minpika that was introduced by a rental shop.
We ordered the most popular brown syrup special and Shikuwasa. I didn't expect the shaved ice. Because I thought shaved ice is the same everywhere, but it was really delicious! The brown syrup special is full of brown syrup, condensed milk, and kinako! Shikuwasa was handmade syrup, so sour and bitter. Even if the ice melted, we can drink just like juice.
This is today's inn, guest house Manya. It looks like a clean guest house, but there were many ants in the room and the sheets of the futon are dirty, so it is probably not washed every day. But it seems this guest house is better than other guesthouses on Hateruma Island.
There were almost no clouds on this day, so I went to the sea in anticipation of sunset. But it was a little clouding at the end. It is very difficult.
This is the second day lunch. The first is Soba Cafe. The homemade Yushi tofu soba was fluffy and delicious. The second is Ayafami. The rice with black rice and several kinds of side dishes are nice, and the rafutey is melty. Although not shown in the picture, Ayafumi also has cakes and drinks. Brown sugar ginger ale is spicy and recommended!
No.1 Anyway, Hateruma Blue is too beautiful! I've been to several islands until now, but this is by far the most beautiful. Time is recommended at 12:00pm!
No.2 Planetarium of nature! You can see the starry sky at night!
No.3 There are many delicious restaurants! The food level and quality are higher than other islands! Prices are not too high. Need the reservation for dinner time.
