We also rented scooters to ride around the island.

Eef Beach - Kume Island (Japan Trip Nov 2016)

Eef Beach イーフビーチ on  Kumejima 久米島 (Kume Island) is a 2km white sand beach. It is an ideal swimming beach but because it was November we just collected shells and coral.

Tatami-ishi (Tatami-Rocks) - Ou Island (Japan Trip Nov 2016)

Tatami-ishi 畳石 (Tatami-Rocks) is a Nationally Designated Natural Monument located on the south coast of Oujima 奥武島 (Ou Island). A bridge connects Oujima with Kumejima. Andesite Magma cooled under a process called columnar jointing creating 1 to 1.5 meter pentagonal and hexagonal shapes. Called Tatami-Rocks because of the resemblance to the tatami mats of traditional Japanese home design. Water erosion has leveled and smoothed the tops of the rock structures.
