The sea turtle museum of kumejima os a small but nice attraction of the island. Nice pools of differents types of turtles, however not really foreigner-friendly with no English subtitles. Good sightseeing spot when rainy day.

Wonderful place to visit and discover the Turtles, the Kumejima Sea Turtle Museum is a 30-45 minutes sight close to the Tatami Beach and offers several varieties of Turtles. Zabojad always delighted to explore such marvellous Settings. The Tatami Beach is Magic and offers wonderful views
