Uehara, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

(1.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
One of the three ports from which you can start exploring Iriomote island, Uehara is a small-town ferry terminal with a small supermarket, a few restaurants, and a petrol station renting scooters and cars. On windy days, the port may be closed, you can still take buses to other nearby ferry ports. You can snorkel and explore the beach north of the port, Hoshizuma no Hama, known for its coral and star-shaped sand. You can also find waterfalls just north of the port. Keep an eye out for information tables about the Iriomote cat, a subspecies of the leopard that lives only on this island.

  • Uehara port's Harbour at the entrance of the Iriomote Island wilderness. Admire the sea of Iriomote blue real nice color ♡ ferry arrives and people in local hotels and tour each nameplate on the one hand, to pick up here. Tour veteran guide helped me up here every year is a port of old familiar faces 'Cross River' I and Hotel Villa beat Kawasaki, it celebrates the reunion. Come on! enjoy! next year? Sunset Cruise? Trek to the waterfall where? Contact away from Tokyo, of course, take what you want and what tour guide's it is important to consult sufficiently in advance. I think important things every week, we stay even wonder tour ask. Guide me to unless guided and nature is filled with danger! Iriomote Island will open up into the great outdoors! Different from the other islands. Better know the local firm please guide me please. Run over by a reluctance gateway to the beginning of a journey, and I don't want to go home. And I'm enclave of Uehara port. * If the cancellation from the Uehara port by bus to Ohara port an hour. Check your flight status to locals.
