It is a primitive Island recognized by the World Organization. So the islanders can't change anything at will. There are only about 380 people on the island, and there are no universities. Visiting villages by Buffalo cart is very unique. Listening to the explanations of the grandfather of the old residents, singing local songs on the tri-stringed piano, slowly enjoying the original ecological buildings, plants and imagining the life of the local people. There are many stars in the night, and they are very beautiful. It's only a long journey. You need to take an hour flight from Naha Airport to Shiyuan Island, and then change to a cruise ship for 10 minutes to Zhufu Island.
I can take part in a variety of island-jumping groups at Shiyuan Wharf. I took part in a one-day group of three islands: Xibiao, Bu and Zhufu. The League is only in Japanese. As soon as some of its friends understand English, they will help us explain it. Every time it rains on these islands, thanks to the off-season, few people can enjoy the beauty of paradise. Bamboo is rich in Star Sand Bay, very special, we take a buffalo car into the village to visit, buffalo can pull more than a dozen people!
Zhufu Island is located in Bazhongshan Archipelago of Ryukyu Islands. It is about 6 kilometers southwest of Shiyuan Island. It takes about 10 minutes to take a high-speed boat from Shiyuan Island. The village is located in the north part of the central part of the island. The houses are mostly made of wood and the roads are mostly white sand, which retains the appearance of early Okinawa. You can take a buffalo car around the old streets of the island and listen to tour guides and three-stringed performances. The Island attaches great importance to cultural preservation, so there are the following provisions - "New residential buildings must be licensed, and subsidies to help lay red tiles. Land acquisition for the purpose of large-scale vacation development is prohibited. As a result of the efforts of the islanders, the existing red tile roof villages have been maintained, and they have become the largest tourist resources on the island, further becoming the "preservation area of traditional buildings".
Clean. Especially clean. Buses are expensive. A kilometer's journey is 330 yen. I took the bullock cart with the island's characteristics. Obasan is very enthusiastic, very good at mobilizing the atmosphere, singing Okinawa folk songs with a three-stringed piano with tears shining (Chinese was sung by Cai Chunjia, forgot the Chinese song title), in that scenario is particularly pleasant. The most touching thing about Zhufu Island is that it is a very poor island, with only a few dozen permanent residents and no decent roads. However, the only school that has been built is very good. I heard there are only four students. It can be seen that Japan attaches great importance to the next generation.
One of the best places to watch the stars in Japan is a small island that I like very much. The bright Milky Way is clearly visible. The Hongxi Noya Hotel on the island is very good to live in. It has ancient residential rooms. There are many other activities to attend. You can see beautiful coral and tropical fish in five minutes. Shiyuan Island is about 10 minutes away from the boat, which is quite convenient.
It was raining all the time. The traditional buildings on the island are particularly well preserved. The roofs of the houses are all built of red tiles. The roads are mostly white sand accumulation. The snow-white beach of Zhufu Island is beautiful. Star sand on the island is also popular with many tourists. Grab a handful of sand and put it in your hand. It really looks like a star. If you like it, you can bring it back for a souvenir.
Zhufu Island is one of the most interesting places in Okinawa. It is a small island with a 9-kilometer square area formed by coral reefs. The ancient buildings were well preserved, with red roofs surrounded by green trees, silver glittering roads, clean and delicate beaches, many beautiful shells and star sand. Free bicycles from accommodation can be used to wander around the island, which is very interesting.
