Yonaguni-jima Island, Yonaguni-cho

(160+ reviews on the web)
Island Nature / Park
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.

  • 都会での嫌なことを忘れられるくらい、のどかで時間を忘れられる最高の土地。広い空に広い海、波の音以外何も聞こえない静かな島。何もないことが逆に最高の産物だと感じる。 My mind feels it was cleared by the scenery I saw. You should definitely go.  more »
  • Definitely recommend! Monument is stunning! Coral reef is full of life, turtles, sharks etc. We had a great dive master from Su-Wes diving shop. He took us to go around pinnacle and arches and caves.  more »
