Hirara Port(area:OKINAWA/OKINAWA)

Islands Spring Winter

The Port of Hirara is located in the northwestern part of Miyako Island (latitude 24? 48' N; longitude 125? 16' E). Miyako Island is the main island of the Miyako Islands, which are located in the middle of the Ryukyu Islands, a chain of islands that stretch from northeast to southwest in the shape of a bow. It is roughly 290 km southwest of Okinawa Island and 133 km northwest of Ishigaki Island.
The port, which was called the "Port of Harimizu" in ancient times, has been cherished and utilized as Miyako's only fine port.
It was designated as a Special Major Port by the Government of the Ryukyu Islands in 1958. In 1959, the name was changed to the Port of Hirara, which is what the port is called today.
