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.

  • To Yonaguni Island, Ishigaki Island by the sea, so the ferry instead of in the plane may go, go by air from the new Ishigaki Airport is common, but is day 1 flight from Naha. Early in the flight, stopping, Naha is the staff was very helpful.

  • Come diving in Yonaguni island in the winter every year. It is because at this time we can see only hammerhead shark. We could see plenty of crowd this year. Other dining options include the underwater ruins. Let's go to come diving in Yonaguni.
