Country Home in Yaeyama

Slide No. 47

Most of the pictures we have seen have been scenes in Okinawa, the principal island of the group. This view is from Yayeyama, a group of islands lying to the southwest close to Formosa. They are much more tropical than Okinawa. The islands are covered with heavy forests and on account of the prevalence of a dangerous form of malaria, they are but sparsely inhabited.
