Okinawa Outer Islands

My Iejima, Okinawa rum distillery tour!

I hopped on the ferry departing the main island of Okinawa for Iejima, which was 30 minutes away. My final destination: a tour of a certain rum distillery on the island of Iejima. I had heard that Ie Rum Santa Maria has a fabulous reputation and makes their rum from sugarcane, so I was eager to check it out!

Hate no Hama is a beach island located around 5 kilometers away from Kume Island in Okinawa. It is an uninhabited island.
Hate no Hama is made up of three islands. From closest to farthest from Kume Island, they are “Menuhama,” “Nakanuhama,” and “Hatinuhama,” but collectively they are known as “Hate no Hama.”
Known for being the most beautiful water in the east, Okinawa’s seawater is gorgeous and extremely clear.
Hate no Hama has also appeared in a commercial for the search engine Google.
