  • Iriomote Island is the high cancellation rate in two out of the harbor toward port. You'd better use this location such as pinaisara, Star sand beach, estuary of urauchi River near the port here is abundant, but canceled the probability is high, so plan b I put it on the head. Ohara via to be canceled when the bus is taken out by the shipping company from the Ohara Uehara port move takes nearly an hour. Also, there are scale smaller than Ohara.

  • I was going at the end of October, the Uehara port on Iriomote Island, canceled went to Ohara port. From the port of Ohara went to Uehara-Juku in EI tourist transfer bus. Ishigaki port went from the Uehara port, was canceled the next day, but throughout the day. Instead I thought terrible shaking, from the port of Ohara is good. Recommended from HP EI tourist destinations of daily, mail registration and daily flights to send by email, it offers.

  • Windy days are cancelled immediately. Canceled on the district's hotel is convenient to Ohara port. If you buy a round-trip are cheaper. Incidentally Uehara round-trip is cheaper but when Ohara is one way new Ohara tickets bought from Uehara stub will be there.
