Pinaisara Falls, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima
(4.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It was a tour too indescribable in a nutshell! Exactly what was inspiring. This time from Kobe Iriomote Island World Championship for the first time pinaisara waterfall 1 day course in family joined. LB kayak from the morning IIDA's pleasant greeting welcomes talk of listening immediately went straight to the site! From there will join together on tour Yokohama M will benefit from Mr. and Mrs., and I are invectives at his wife and 5-year-old daughter. While rowing the canoe is also head at the entrance of the unexplored while watching the crabs and fish while pulling a canoe in POIs and POIs. While observing lots of fishes in mangrove trees arrive at the entrance of the Trek! Pinaisara falls until safely thanks to Hirose, became anxious and we were pretty tough scene, cuts climb 5-year-old daughter plays received this support as a guide we gave you a lot of attention to clean, especially my daughter was able to arrive! Time of arrival falls to yourskills overjoyed filled with bliss. It was a cocktail of the best lunch I've ever had, freshly made warm Yae mountain buckwheat. Pinaisara aerial view is of course lose the words about inspirational! And next head to the waterfall, so float in the water basin overlooking the empty cool down. It also really impressed! Rowing the canoe again last, we finish all safely! This impression was of course views of natural splendor, but bursting lunch for everyone and water to further guide Hirose, Luc 背負i込mi (it was a substantial weight) have the attention attentive and always safely and all of us! And to protect the natural food scraps and it brought back all remaining dashi汁 and continually on the river! Yokohama were accompanied with gentle M and his wife to go out we met! And the man's 5-year-old daughter had to course one day and made it to the end as the parent happy, how much money piled more pleasant and I was so happy I was able to experience natural ties! Really this was to join the tour. Very impressed. Thank you very much!! ︎ Hirose, and together everyone's, and pigaryar climbed the you! Bought daughter a reward (lol)

  • Join Blue season tour in August. Summer can be enjoyed even in the rain. The waterfall by canoe through mangrove forests, gradually approaching. Stop canoeing and jungle trekking from there! When we got to the falls was impressed. Swimming in the waterfall, so would get tired. I think good outfits, long sleeved, long leggings. I took the gloves. It is a perfect base if you go on the island of Iriomote, one.

  • I went on the tour. Can UV-cut bathing suits on (I'm Parker sport thin) coat, hat and sunglasses; Canoe treks do not yet to the falls. Views of the falls are seen mother nature! Too grand, speechless. Let's crawl when you see below. Clothes while bathed in natural mountain water, work out. (While having a meal at the falls dry. ) Basin is too tired of trekking up waterfalls as the flying power. It is overwhelmed. Again into the water in the basin of the guests. It was a one-day tour, very good experience.
