    Only to see the river for soil located in the lower reaches of the River, mangroves to nurture is not the main islands (Island style of major metropolitan areas) no mangroves (hilgi), inspiring. Just got to Bush in a canoe, you can experience the different dimensions of the world. Did not have interest in this precious natural for the people of the island, could not afford to under-developed income direct things in the interest is directed from. You felt was a good time.

    Island tours, he's participated in the canoe. Canoeing on can get a brief ride was for the first time, but assured, could participate. Guests can enjoy a little so you can guide a tributary into the mangrove jungle jungle. In a two-hour tour, 10-staff. I was a long one and a short tour to see what was just tired, good.

    Participated in the canoe, but in relation to the time of low tide time is 30 minutes earlier and was started. We went sightseeing by canoe, but from the start hour could barely walk around without having previously attended less than water. This is where again relaxed to come.

Where to stay in Amami

Amami offers a plethora of beachfront resorts and modern hotels, as well as more affordable inns further back from its sunny shores. The best way to experience the city is to stay as close as possible to its natural attractions, most of which hug the coast. If you can't afford to stay along the beach in a typical Amami resort, consider an inexpensive pension or basic "ryokan" guesthouse.
