A newish building in the quaint Yaeyama architectural style, this post office is attractive and worth a stop for a postcard. One of the most appealing post offices in Japan I'd say.

This post office is a very cute building. If you go there, remember to send a postcard because they will put their special stamp on your postcard.

They even sell stamps, mail your mail and parcels and take care of bank and money transfers if need be.

It's nice, it's cute, and it was good to send a postcard back home. But, well, it's a post office. Convenient and all, nicely built, but if you don't have anything to send you can skip it.

It is also nice when you need a bit of an air con break during the day since there is not much shade in Taketomi! Very helpful staff and although it looks small from the outside it is actually spaciousish inside.
