Pinaisara Falls, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

4.8
#2 of 17 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.

  • Pinaisara Takigami trekking (afternoon session) participated in the activities of the hotel. Am I crossing a River Road, passing the rope or climbing in the steep mountain road is very steep. Also seems so long sleeve long pants recommended a significant amount of exercise on a summer becomes quite sweaty. Although elementary school children who climb to cut, as lower grades, well okay maybe I was. Ancona rather to lack of exercise, but you, as has been commented views of the falls are really great. Wetlands, mangrove green framed when I climb off just in front of the sea at low tide flats has become Brown and sea blue contrast is amazing. Also saw barasu and hatoma island in the distance. Children in the landscape so much lack of interest, and was involved in the observation of the small shrimp that inhabit the river. Instructor sent, I heard you can't climb up the falls River is swollen due to weather and sometimes struggles to trek more than expected, and muddy rain even trail the day before. If the weather even for business, Best Western table spot I think.

  • Views from the top of the waterfall is spectacular! May be worth a look. It is not, however, reach the top of the falls is easy. Moderate resolution is required. Climb the steep course for about one hour. Under 12 years old, is over 60 years old very? Content also falls for lunch. Instructors are enthusiastic and much nicer. Canoe will do it according to the instructions easy and secure.

  •  Iriomote Island has jungle trekking.  I went to the falls from the pinaisara waterfall. Not pass a person was so crowded during the season and was enjoying the great outdoors. In Okinawa, as head of the most powerful!  Only in the middle way, extraordinary scenery was very refreshing.

  • While, I didn't go directly to the waterfalls, they may be viewed from the highway, travelling the road leading up the northeast coast. Look for the golden statue if the Iriomote Yamaneko and a Japanese signboard. It shows the direction of the waterfall and, it may be seen in the distant mountains, from this location
  • Have had so much fun trekking and canoe, anyone please find Pororoca, the guide speaks English and very caring!
  • go and rent a kayak, great showers under the falls
  • Excellent view
  • Purchased in dynamic Dykema used the bicycle all the way came all the way. Aiming at the tide filled cited between star sand camp members several groups at the strangers who visit on foot, was in Okinawa Prefecture, the spectacular waterfall. Views of the falls, at low tide mangrove swamp walks is exceptional. Iriomote climbing experience for the first time all the mountains, and with action, valuable experience. Today, their spirits origin also there.
