Yonaguni-jima Island, Yonaguni-cho

(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Yonaguni-jima Island and other Yonaguni-cho attractions using our handy Yonaguni-cho itinerary builder.

  • With the motorcycle and running around in 1 hour. Not horse manure so halfway through the ranch in the South and the North is down the road, so caution is required.

  • It is around 28 km. To go around I think the can in a short time with the bike around. Halfway around on a bicycle. Thought it best to go around on a bike has been around in the car, but enjoy quite violently up and down. Especially sunny bright day is best. Watch out for the Texas gate on the road leading to the ranch, inlet and outlet, please pass slowly.
