  • 40 minutes then trek began in the canoe. There were many MIH has started climbing. Is a steep rocky terrain is covered with rope climb and although there. Above the falls overlook the nature of Iriomote. It was thrilling from the edge of the cliff overlooking the basin. You could see the saximaquinobolitor middle of the descent.

  • Interior view from the falls and it was sunny, we visited on a guided tour. Some hard climbs, however there are places I like should be heeded takishita too too small children or elderly people. Waterfall itself is from the top and almost invisible (but if you look at the risk of falling), fun takishita. Guide me, goes about someone with no guide wants to go only one way, but said there are many routes available, so if it's okay with you. Don't just worry about such as a hub, so that seems safe.
