Yonaguni-jima Island, Yonaguni-cho
(4.6/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • From Ishigaki Bombardier propeller aircraft 30 minutes, on the last flight of the 11/4 evening arrived, 2 nights, stayed until the last flight for the third day. Small island circle two days time with kana, but untouched nature is very beautiful and the pictures like I was among three of the best. Agari and grazing horses, horses preferred. It is a space time has stopped. Cape irizaki at the western end is the sunset!! See also underwater ruins and enjoyed the 10 minutes. Weather well I went three days in the calm sea, nice but nothing too so you want to diet, but when you shop with children as inconvenient. Hopefully I do island. Japan is truly mobile radio signal anywhere. Where food and izakaya is a tourist island, but less so, advance look at the Guidebook does not reserve and, at the long-awaited trip ruined. Be sure to book. As the number of stores not ヽ (* be ∀ ')-. It might be raining when you go from hopeless? People around in a motor-assisted bicycles up and down is a lot, car rental is recommended. No signal is only two places on the island can run smoothly. Finally, the resort is not so special is not. It is from this island is nothing but good.
