NATURE: Tropical Climes

Easily explored on foot, the tiny island of Taketomi forms part of Japan’s southernmost archipelago – the Yaeyama islands. Hot and humid, the island’s tropical climate has created a landscape bursting with life, where thick tangles of plants line the roads and climb the walls.
