Yonaguni-jima Island, Yonaguni-cho
(4.5/5 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.

  • Airplane flights are flying as edge island in Okinawa Prefecture, the same, things seem to be better at Hateruma Island come Yonaguni island. Up and down a 10-day trips are available, so we recommend to rent a car or motorbike.

  • Is better than the familiar mistake ferry a number of bed and breakfast is a small island has not been registered three car rental companies, five Community stores, Internet and business ambiguous and at night with locals always full of food and beverage outlets. A private beach is small beach has many on the island, and almost nobody. Is understood Hall who diligently prepared trails in the mountains are always in good condition, and each beach has clean restrooms and showers, putting power sightseeing tourists rarely see it... in other words is off the beaten path. South Pole one not road covered with horse, walking, diving, well laid back on the scooter island. I see a woman traveling alone there. Advanced user tired of attraction of people to the way doing early 比川 shop will sell you anything. Go from day to the airport or port at night always put reserved. June and October is a good time? Basic winter is always rain and strong winds. Summer it adds the strong sunlight.

  • I went to go to the credit-handover-style (will be) ranch, said the Mongolian steppes. If you walked in blowing in the breeze rocked on the horse's back and enjoyed the fantastic landscape. In the Meadow, trot and Gallop me fit your skills and free time. Ranch, skimmed had the Yonaguni Horse 15 head, unassuming Natsuki to come back during the "welcome back, welcome back! "And walked up to the spacious room and bathroom. Owner the Mr.Tanaka us take too many pictures, very good memories. As you go how the Yonaguni underwater ruins, not come and touch in the Yonaguni Horse.
