Pinaisara Falls, Iriomote-jima

4.8
#2 of 15 in Nature in Taketomi-cho
Looking like a long white beard hanging down towards a foaming pond, the 55 m (180 ft) drop of Pinaisara Falls makes is the city's highest falls. Accessible both by foot and by canoe, the location provides plenty of trekking, kayaking, and swimming opportunities capped by a view from the top of the falls. Some say the falls resemble a long white beard hanging down, which is how the site got its name. Experience the sights and sounds of rare birds and watch subtropical trees while sitting in the pool beneath the falls. The site begs for photos but the climate is tropical, so bring cases for cameras to protect them from the humidity here.

  • Participate in the day to play the unique wooden boat and then climb the mountain, after the hill to eat the team of the eight mountain noodles, eat saturated shadow next to the waterfall Lake swimming and shadow. It is best to wear long trousers and use gloves to help climb the mountain.

  • Wonderful trekking experience to the top and bottom of the waterfall. Joined a tour on Veltra which provides buy-one-get-one-free mangrove kayaking and mountain adventure full day tour (6 hours long). Awesome experience!
  • The falls was truly a natural product without any human contribution. It took us 1 hour to arrive there from the port, but i'd say it worth to do so.
  • we did a daytrip there and it was one of the best of my life. awesome and fun guide, cool group, good activity (kayaking, hike, local food, swimming), great view. All in all awesome!
  • While, I didn't go directly to the waterfalls, they may be viewed from the highway, travelling the road leading up the northeast coast. Look for the golden statue if the Iriomote Yamaneko and a Japanese signboard. It shows the direction of the waterfall and, it may be seen in the distant mountains, from this location
  • Have had so much fun trekking and canoe, anyone please find Pororoca, the guide speaks English and very caring!
