Yaeyama-yashi of Yonehara, Ishigaki

(2.9/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Yaeyamayashi community yaeyamayashi Yonehara went, as Palm roots around the roots of the beard, had grown to fill.

  • It is not only in Yaeyama Palm forest. Parking is maintained and, at the entrance and shops were crowded. Walking trails have been built, but the discount and gojinn had a ball.

  • You can see have seen only a portion of natural monument in Ishigaki Island and Iriomote Island, Yaeyama Palm tree canopy. In the forest just a few minutes walk will come and get in the colony area in quite a spectacular sight. Come visit, so if you're in the car a short distance away. Good in selling sugar cane juice at the entrance.
