This islands at the very most southern tip of Japan, a short ferry ride off of Okinawa was heaven to us! No overwhelming crowds, pure crystal clear water, snorkeling above live corals and hundreds of colorful fish, and simply a peaceful place to get away from it all. Of all the places we visited, Tokashiki island will always be our... More

Two very nice beaches. Aharen beach has a much smaller swimming/ snorkelling area than Tokashiku. There is a really cool, little uninhabited island just of the coast by Aharen beach. You can reach it by glass bottom or banana boat for 1000 yen, round trip. Tokashiku offers more space to swim and the possibility of spotting sea turtles. Both beaches... More

Well preserved nature, friendly and laid back locals, clear water and quiet beach; Tokashiki offers all that and much more, just an hour from Naha. I knew it was good, but on arrival on the island, i realized it was even better!! We went weekdays, so that explain why there was not so many people; though I would imagine during... More

I went to Tokashiki island yesterday with visitors we had to Okinawa. We booked the ferry in advance and opted for the slow ferry for the times because we didn't think we would need a huge amount of time on the island. In hindsight, we should have opted for the earlier ferry over and the later one back because the... More

So close to Naha, and yet such a completely different vibe. Get a 40 or 70min ferry from Naha, and the scenery completely changes to clear blue waters, free from crowds

The island is absolutely beautiful. It's small and quiet, a perfect place to relax. There are amazing beaches and the scenery is quite stunning. It's just a 35 min trip from Naha, but the island didn't have many tourists. I could even go snorkeling at Aharen beach all alone. Definitely worth visiting, even for just a day.

No pictures or stories can really do a justice when speaking about just how beautiful Tokashiki Island, and Aharen Beach, are. The boat ride is well worth the time and money to see such an awesome, unspoiled slice of the planet. I've done a lot of traveling around Asia and this is without a doubt one of the nicest places...

I wanted to spend a half day at Aharen Beach but was worried about transportation on the island after getting there by ferry. Turns out that it was really easy. At Tomari port, I caught the 9am express ferry to the island, which arrived in 35 minutes. There was a shuttle bus awaiting passengers, and the driver was holding a... More
