  • It is a gateway to North of Iriomote Island, Uehara area dive shops, etc. Iriomote Island of common sense that the Uehara port are likely to receive wave thing affected by wind. We stayed at was non-operation for four days. Via Ohara port to always assume, it is strongly recommended.

  • It is a convenient port to reach the western area of Iriomote. From the autumn wind when you go from a stone wall out into the ocean to winter in the vicinity often. Hatoma Island looks from the Harbor, Harbor area in the relatively peaceful. Super short walk a little and a dining room.

  • Have only one small souvenir shop in the Terminal, then nothing. Harbour boat waiting, time to kill, less dining options and may be limited. When it comes to the Iriomote Island, Ishigaki Island from Uehara and Ohara is the embarkation fee on the original port arrival and departure of the a little higher.
