(1.9/5 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. Keep an eye out for information tables about the Iriomote cat, a subspecies of the leopard that lives only on this island.

  • I went to 12/2016. Iriomote Island Ferry Terminal 2 and here Uehara port refers to the port of Ohara. Can be cancelled port of Uehara port plenty of accommodation and shops, is useful, but a lot. Uehara port in the vicinity and comes out bus service from the port of Ohara. Even when I went on the original port to was canceled.

  • 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.
