O que nós fazemos
  • Our tour of the island of Miyakojima starts with a visit to the cape of Higashi-Hennazaki in the south-eastern part of the island and lapped by the Pacific Ocean to the left and the East China Sea to the right. It Is a narrow flat stretch of land that stands out from the cobalt blue of the sea and named after its position (“Higashi” means East, where the Sun rises).
  • The promontory is a couple of km long and 160 metres wide, while the water is approximately 20 metres deep. * A snowy white lighthouse is perched on the peak offering amazing views from the observation bridge.
  • This place has been declared one of Japan's top one hundred scenic spots.
  • Before returning to the port and the ship, we stop at the Ueno German Culture Village, nowadays a theme park reminiscent of the place where the locals saved a German crew from a shipwreck off the coast during the 19th century. A reduced scale copy of the ship was built to commemorate the event and, from that moment onwards, a strong link was forged between the people of the island and Germany.
  • The village is also home to the Museum of Philanthropy.
