4.7
#1 of 13 in Nature in Yaeyama-gun
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.

  • On tour from Ishigaki Island, ran through the island. Cruise with friends can see mangroves. Here we cannot and do not, in the Iriomote Island experience.

  • Visit for the holidays. Lighten the otherwise Poker sweat jacket only and are exploring. Is one of the few restaurants closed, near the ferry terminal and Super, Champloo or your favorite snack and baked, bought and Orion beer and yakitori, because it had a bench outside the store, was a picnic. Really pristine and natural forests. It was scenery of Japan I don't think much motivation and impact. There are plenty of unusual plants. Zhou is like, next time I rented a bike for just two hours, walking alone in transit.

  • West Island is an island that I like very much. You can row on the West Island and you can climb the mountain to enjoy the nature of the Finn and because there is no light to meet the stars high in the sky, the Great Island
