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.

  • Compared to Ohara port from Ishigaki on a high number of flights are few. Even more convenient to go to star sand beach or Beach Coast Nakano and IDA barasu island!

  • Used when you travel to the end of the year. Cancelled port, and listening, but was worried about the in this trip depart at the end of March, early April return, both flights were. Very small and quiet Harbor, small souvenir shop. While waiting for the returning boat sea of scabbard fish length-not discovered the fish. I think it's fun just wait I look at the sea.

  • It is the gateway to western part of Iriomote Island. It is only small ships in the harbour hours gather people and cars, to be a little busy. Winter cancellation, transfer to Ohara port when the contact of the two ferry companies and shuttle bus a bit more complicated.
