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.

  • It is about Japan I don't think rustic place. Exoticism. It is the southernmost point of Japan. Shops are lined is what you need. You can also dine out. Don't bother with the village than I had. We have 2 nights diving in slowly.
