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.

  • Iriomote Island half-day first landed on a sightseeing tour. In serving as a guide for tour bus driver's humorous descriptions, especially being how important the Iriomote cat is found. Notes billboards were amazed, as accident prevention measures under the highway underpass (tunnel)-Iriomote cat but places can be made. Service when you send us up to Ohara port at the end of the tour, near the port, photo shoot for us all the way stopped Japan's southernmost traffic light, calm, I felt excited.

  • Recommended activities over the whole day, I'd play. Osaemashou discover the wild life night. Hopefully you can find coconut crab and various wildlife.

  • You can kayak in the river or the sea, Iriomote is jungle. While trekking or bathing in a waterfall and kayak is great for outdoor fields. From small children to adults to play it so much fun.
