  • Rent a car and tour in Yonaguni island. Speaking of Yonaguni Island, in the world's largest moth, Atlas moth! Visit the ayamihaville Pavilion in the designation of the Atlas moth (laughs). Because it came nine years ago, but I also visited. The Atlas moth cocoons are displayed near the entrance, and he is looking at what, in front of big moths. Decorations and thought, "it is a real thing. I'm living. It emerged this morning. Is OK because it does not move during the day "and guide it to tell us, surprised. And the decay I think cage or aquarium pets, even genuine, because the full alert (laughs) creepy rather than face the cute face and I was. Larva (so-called giant caterpillars) are disgusting... I think to understand story of Yaeyama and Yonaguni Island the valuable insects and animals, including insects like in various attractive places. If you go on the island of Yonaguni!!

  • The Atlas moth species on the island of Yonaguni, the world's largest moth exhibit! I think it's interesting to people who like bugs. I think anyone not attracted interest in its own way exhibits. You can see the real emerging have been exhibited before the emerging pupa, if you're lucky. Though still hanging open wings 1 day after emergence, dries up and that (then is free in the Woods) moth wing pattern is very clean.

  • Out the Atlas moth live!! ︎ really big and really beautiful and was very impressed. Look at the Atlas moth specimen wings and feathers of living color is different, so take a look at live! See was writing lucky anytime the Atlas moth is alive and in front of Word of mouth, so, I was happy. Seeing guests 20-minute video in about 20 minutes and seems to stay is roughly 40 minutes. As some other rare turtles and snakes was studied. Curator who was very helpful. Thank you very much.

Aside from a dorm-style budget hostel and a high-end resort, lodgings mostly consist of cozy "minshuku," or Japanese family-run bed and breakfasts. A couple of ryokans offering tatami floors with futons round out the selection.
