Footprints of "Field Project" at HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

  • HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

On Taketomi Island, also known as “the island of performing arts,” about 20 traditional festivals are still held every year. Most of the traditional songs and dances presented during the festivals are related to agriculture or pray for a good harvest. Agriculture is the base of the culture and history of Taketomi Island, whose inhabitants have lead self-sufficient lives, and there is a unique “crop field culture” born from the wisdom of the island inhabitants and the environment. The crop field culture central to life on the island is being lost along with the development of tourism and distribution, so HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island created a field inside the facility in 2017 under the instruction of Mr. Ryuichi Maemoto, who is well-versed in the crop field culture. In order to pass on this culture and crops unique to the island, created from the natural environment of Taketomi island and the work of its inhabitants, the “Field Project” was commenced.
