On windy days, the port may be closed, you can still take buses to other nearby ferry ports. You can snorkel and explore the beach north of the port, Hoshizuma no Hama, known for its coral and star-shaped sand. You can also find waterfalls just north of the port.

  • It is a very small port. Free car park was used near food and beverage stores available. With fewer people is a quiet Harbour. Nearby restaurants etc, there was also a lot of accommodation. Many participants on ballast Island activities, such as transfer of staying this side of things.

  • The ports on Iriomote Island, Uehara. Located on the north side of the island, including winter canceled ferry to many. Ports include a waiting room or small shop. So, parking and toilet was used in a toilet break.
