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.

    You got in a canoe will play in money, but in the top of the falls 1:30 as H walk, climb. Who made the change and they collect information. Not much wonder at first if you cross the river. Iriomote Island is the island of adventure. Have your lunch Go!
