This is Taketomi Island, ten minutes by high-speed craft from Ishigaki Island. The islanders are proud of its tradition and lifestyle. They have preserved their housing tradition. As you see above, it is characterized by its red roof tiles and coral limestone walls. And every house has a very attractive decoration called Shisa on the roof. It is regarded as guardian.
This is part of Skywatch Friday.
This is DEIGO in Japanese. It's a tropical tree and this is my first time to find one in our region. I found one at the Oji Zoo in Kobe. I had a wonderful time with my two grandkids on Sunday.
This is pat of Ruby Tuesday Too.
