Taketomi Island: Living in Harmony with Nature

This is a wonderful 28 minute video made by a German visitor to this tiny coral atoll, which is part of the Yaeyama Islands in Okinawa. The images are beautiful, as are the people. The island is only 2 square miles, 1.7 miles by 2.1 miles. There are no hotels so overnight visitors stay in family homes with guest accommodations. The lifestyle of the islanders is a lesson in sustainability. The video was published on 8/26/13.
