Iriomote Island, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

(4.7/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Short sleeve was winter is unusual, great skiing, though at the end of January. Mangrove tour, nature could enjoy the Iriomote Island. Is there such a place in Japan's-jumps I tip! May be worth going once. I felt more natural and there is less populated island, are important to the island.
