About

Kumeguide.com aims to be your window to Kumejima, which is located 100km west of Okinawa. While the island has a long history, tons of natural beauty, and a lot of great people, in the past there were limited resources for tourists in English and other languages. It is hoped that this site will spark your interest in Kume, and help those who travel here find their way around and experience this great place to its fullest.

We are still building this site, adding features, and revising, so please contact morethingsjapanese [a] gmail.com to let me know if you have any problems or suggestions.

This site was designed, written, and is maintained by author Benjamin Martin. He has lived on outer Okinawa islands since 2008. His Samurai Awakening novels are available on Amazon. This Guide is part of his attempt to thank and support the amazing people of Okinawa. Benjamin worked for the Kume Island Board of Education while developing most of this site, but it is in no way sponsored by the local Kumejima government or its representatives.

This site is optimized for high-resolution displays. It will automatically adjust its layout for phones and tablets as well. Older, or low-resolution displays may not display correctly. I appologize for any inconvinience.
