Iribana Date Night at HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

  • HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

From March 1st to May 31st, 2020, HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island, located on Taketomi Island in Okinawa, will offer the Iribana* Date Night. Guests can watch the sunset while enjoying a cocktail on a sabani, a traditional wooden boat from the Ryukyu Islands. After enjoying the sunset, dinner will be served for the couples at HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island’s dining hall to create special memories together on the Island.
*Iribana means “sunset” in the Taketomi Island dialect.

Sabani is a type of traditional Ryukyuan wooden boat that was once used for transport and fishing on
Taketomi Island. Today, there are only three places in all of Japan that offer sabani rides. HOSHINOYA
Taketomi Island developed a program for guests to gaze at the sunset while riding a sabani in the pleasant southern breeze of springtime in Taketomi Island. The ferry to/from Ishigaki Island doesn’t run during the sunset. That means, only the Taketomi Island residents and guests staying overnight can see this special view. Among the cocktails while enjoying the sunset, the dinner at the dining hall, and more, there will be many special memories made between just the two of you.
