Flowers of Taketomi Island

Taketomi 竹富島

I don't often take photos of flowers. I quite like flowers, and they are obviously beautiful, but I am not obsessed with them.

All these shots were taken on Taketomi Island in Okinawa, a sub-tropical environment with some large and spectacular flowers.

I visited in an April, so don't know what the floral offerings are at other times of the year.

I also have absolutely no oidea of the names of any of these flowers, in English, Japanese, nor Lation.

This display was in front of the village school, or maybe the former village school. One could easily imagine oneself in England.

  1. The last one looks like a hibiscus.

    1. Yes, that's definitely an hibiscus. I saw them in several scenic spots on Ishigaki-jima.

  2. I absolutely love flowers! Thank you for sharing these beauties! ♥
