Yonaguni-jima Island, Yonaguni-cho

Tour the unique attractions on Yonaguni-jima Island, Japan's westernmost inhabited island. Here you'll find 120-proof sake, only produced on the island, and the distinct Yonaguni horse, a small breed also found only here. Perhaps the most intriguing thing on the island remains the mysterious subaquatic monolithic structure, located off the coast. Consider a scuba diving excursion to the seafloor to observe the massive stone formation, believed to be the remnants of an ancient, sunken civilization. Along the way, you'll also see a coral reef teeming with marine life, including hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, manta rays, and more. Yonaguni-jima Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Yonaguni-cho Edition.

  • I heard there was an origin vilagers that might be come from Tanah Melayu long time ago. Is it true? Because, research that made by Japanese team, found that they (the origin villagers) cant speak Japanese language, and cant understand. Only 3 words recorded by researcher, MATA, BATU, AIR....and these 3 words was used by Malay people.
  • Ishigaki Island by propeller-driven aircraft came to Japan's westernmost island. Underwater archaeological diving spot is our snorkeling guide is in it to HK. Too much famous for great archaeological mysteries is not. And visited Cape overlooking Taiwan far away. All around the islands of the Pacific Ocean. Please visit again.
