Iriomote Island, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima
(4.7/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • We came here on a day trip from Ishigaki, and it was well worth the trip. This beautiful piece of unspoilt nature really merits more than a day to be fully appreciated. 
  • Sea I went for the first time, but from the sky is very beautiful, also rich in nature, spent prone island. If you rent a car in one day, it is recommended for rentals.

  • Iriomote is one of the main islands in Yaeyama and it is a perfect place for adventure and relax at the same time. Beautiful and blue beaches, rivers with mangroves and falls and many more things.
