Mangrove Forested Area, Amami

4.3
Explore the flourishing, verdant Mangrove Forested Area, on the subtropical isle of Amami. Take a kayak tour with a knowledgeable guide through the waterways of this region, where ocean and river water mix, and trees develop strange seeds, dispatched to float along the liquid avenues. Your guide will point out various interesting species of animal and plant life, including the ryukyu ruddy kingfisher, a summer resident here. Be sure to bring plenty of water and a sun hat, plus a pair of binoculars to increase your chances of spotting animals.

  • Parked on station road car park walk, the Observatory is located about 10 minutes away. You can see e.g. down the winding mangrove River in a canoe. It is a magnificent view.

  • My wife and I decided to take the kayaking trip into the mangroves and - although fun - is a little overrated by some of the reviewers here on TripAdvisor. I am a reasonably experienced kayaker but it...  more »
  • Is examined prior to booking sites such as a canoe ride in the mangrove, canoe single and bookings from 2, which had a mid-life. Is not normally in ride on the day went to the mangrove Park and still see. I've ever seen, and you can freely choose to single-seater or 2 seater (marital children three passenger-friendly) is the most reasonable. Prospects after the mangrove Park is for some reason a ground golf course and small reference library only. For more than 15 minutes to down time without a reservation, once again time to canoe. Canoe had left five times every hour and a half. Practice time together and were about 20 participants, takes a life jacket and all, paddling in the land. And into the water. Even harder in the beginning, guide and it went smoothly, at the beginning, avoiding rocks and asaba grab tricks immediately. Had hit the canoe together in a narrow place, no risk. Only, with splashes of all my pants are wet. Again, it was Hella fun. However, afford told arms in about 5 minutes, became the school of fish is also looking good in the 漕gimashita. Was filling the tide times for the mangrove tunnel go by canoe, all parked in there or photo, listened to the description of the mangrove. Two guides who is led back and forth, the berth and taking us very hard to. And headed back, ended a more than one hour! On the tour were very helpful and very nice. For lost water, tide times, landed in the front, to the various creatures. It is so now also want to go, it can be a valuable experience. Cannot take photos and views, and I was rowing in their fun, but tiring 2-seater is recommended. Please check in advance bookings and tide times.

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.
