Hoshinooto

★ Hoshinoto --Starry Sky Tour x Shima Uta--

Have you ever had a breathtaking experience of seeing the stars shining in the night sky?
From the time of birth to just before, people were looking at the starry sky every night as a matter of course. The sun, moon, and stars, which change their positions accurately every day, were calendars that inform the seasons and clocks that keep track of the day. Our grandfathers and grandmothers knew that it was the right time to sow rice and wheat seeds when a star rose. The heavens and the earth were connected, and people's lives were greatly influenced by the world of the heavens. However, in recent years, the stars in the night sky are gradually disappearing in places where people live. Do we no longer need the starry sky? The starry sky of the Yaeyama Islands is not just beautiful. It plays a rhythm in which people and nature are in harmony. Let's go to the starry sky walk. Would you like to be surrounded by a real night world that is fresh but nostalgic?

★ Plan A: Hoshigoyomi

This tour is dated by Koyomi Hoshi, and the start time will change depending on the appearance of the stars on that day. Seireki13ya is a tour where you can meet the co-starring of the sunset, the stars, and the moon during the three-hour tour. The meteor shower is a tour where you can experience the tour of stars while counting shooting stars. The Tanabata tour of the lunar calendar, where people from old times loved the stars. A tour to admire the lovely crescent moon. Hoshinooto's "Star Calendar" is a tour that guides you to the perfect place for the starry sky at that time.
