Visit Iriomote Island, a jungle-covered island popular with nature lovers. The population of Okinawa's second-largest island remains relatively small, with just 2,000 permanent inhabitants and nearly 90 percent of the landmass covered in thick, lush jungle and mangrove forests. Attracting outdoor adventurers and nature enthusiasts, the habitats onshore and off support a varied population of animals, including the Iriomote Yamaneko (a wildcat only found on the island), and manta rays swimming around the coral reef. Take a diving trip with one of the many established tour operators, or kayak down the rivers of the island's interior. Put Iriomote Island at the forefront of your travel plans using our Taketomicho Iriomote-jima family vacation planner.

  • Is an island you can feel a few life cycle. You will be noticed or have lots of life, as long as you observe carefully how alive the diverse life. Unfortunately 2016 is the number of traffic accidents of past worst became. That it, sacrificed much more wild animals may have. That became accustomed to resort managed by the many people in Iriomote Island feel free to destroy this great environment is very, very sad. Iriomote Island is a small island but one, although the largest island in Okinawa Prefecture during. If the ecosystem is destroyed quickly that would. Watching the sea gets bleached coral and coral plateau reefs have disappeared, will feel the impact of climate change. You will feel after watching the animals, they are how nervous and frightened the people. May damage the heart in that many wild animals are at the expense of development and traffic accidents. Sphere of human life and conflict with many organisms, Iriomote Island charm in this wonderful ecosystem may be lost forever. If you visit this island seriously and firmly think in my head. You may feel about the symbiotic relationship between human activity and other life is. Well I feel like straying into the forest by the sea to hilarity. Want you to jeopardize the lives of wild animals whether you visit on the island of Iriomote.
