Pinaisara Falls, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

4.8
#2 of 13 in Nature in Yaeyama-gun
Looking like a long white beard hanging down towards a foaming pond, the 55 m (180 ft) drop of Pinaisara Falls makes is the city's highest falls. Accessible both by foot and by canoe, the location provides plenty of trekking, kayaking, and swimming opportunities capped by a view from the top of the falls. Some say the falls resemble a long white beard hanging down, which is how the site got its name. Experience the sights and sounds of rare birds and watch subtropical trees while sitting in the pool beneath the falls. The site begs for photos but the climate is tropical, so bring cases for cameras to protect them from the humidity here.

  • I went on the tour. 1 whole take authentic tour Hotel in Bento provides hope, from the morning until the evening plans. To the falls is over one night of Iriomote Island can also swim in the basin to walk in if you want a challenge come.

  • Outdoor tours in Iriomote Dan far pinaisara popular. It was a swim tour, then in jungle trekking Takigami, after lunch rafted down to river rises in the kayaking course. It was in 3 km kayak treks are also not much difference between the high and low, so a little unsatisfactory. Blast is bathed in abundant water, but it was not rained so good views, fun.

  • At Okinawa too unusual, large differences in elevation falls is no. 1 at the prefecture. No doubt be a memorable play in the basin. We recommend going through the Hinai River in a canoe guided tours since. I think it is fun just watching Iriomote's unique natural, since you explained better.
