#13 of 23 in Parks in Iriomote-jima
One of the three ports from which you can start exploring Iriomote island, Uehara is a small-town ferry terminal with a small supermarket, a few restaurants, and a petrol station renting scooters and cars. 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. Keep an eye out for information tables about the Iriomote cat, a subspecies of the leopard that lives only on this island.

  • Iriomote Island West entrance and Uehara routes depending on the time also canceled a lot, Ohara routes than long duration and high rates (approximately 10 minutes). Entered from the Ohara as personal opinion, and West of urauchi River, Star sand beach, as well as many from the Ohara can be reached in about one hour from the abundance of convenience for routes and car rental arrangements, accommodation travel rants, so I feel better.
