Landmark
Take a walk into a jungle formed by impressively tall palm trees endemic to the island at Yaeyama-yashi of Yonehara. Sited at the base of a mountain, the forest features many species of palm trees, including Yaeyama-yashi, designated a natural treasure. At the beginning of the broad boardwalk, stop by small shops selling juice and shaved ice--ideal refreshments before or after your walk. You can also take a short hike to the observation point that offers a view of the palm trees reaching towards the sky.

  • Fewer of the Palm, I was expecting, but disappointing. But in the parking lot next to the store you can buy souvenir sugar cane juice, brown sugar, natural salt

  • From line 79, enters the Billboard named "Yaeyama 300 m". Will Alley is confused at first, turn the "300 metres" and was very helpful, but on the sign. Find the Yaeyama mountains Palm Memorial signs ahead and by the way, comes from the direction of Kabira, but a little way to the Palm community real earlier in that (on the terrace). Arrived in 5 minutes ' stroll from the parking lot up concession stands on the side of the Palm trees watching from below deck, so walking is complete. I walk well paved promenade is slightly uphill, but since children well. Beautiful shade of the Woods is the palms are also interesting, but get the morning sun.
