(1.8/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • Bound rough seas, Uehara to go Ohara ship arrival. I'm so travel time is 1 hour more. Return the sea becomes calm, boat ride from Uehara. During the winter months as it is tough. If you can't ride schedule changes, so is changeable. The waiting room is only a small shop. Iriomote cat bulletin.

  • 1 month, 2 month, wave increases the easy, Ishigaki Island and Iriomote Island (Uehara port) flight is canceled almost every day. In this case, and buy tickets to the Uehara port of Ohara port via Uehara port-will transfer by bus from Shirahama port operated by the shipping company's. Ships can travel with the Yaeyama kanko ferry, got the bus becomes separate common ticket will be. In addition, Yaeyama kanko ferry, I, by the evening of the day before the reservation is required. Attention is required.

  • Kanko homepage always comes from Ishigaki Island ferry flights, but winter and spring are in the vicinity is Uehara port, hatoma Island, Hateruma Island, three so caution is required. So if you need a travel thought to Ohara due to cancellations from the southern port of Ohara until Uehara port takes about 40 minutes by bus, so travel time scheduling, please note
