Subtropical Plant Paradise Yubujima Island, Yubu-jima Taketomi-cho

4.0
#5 of 48 in Parks in Yaeyama-gun
A thick natural growth of some 40,000 coconut and other subtropical trees, as well as 30 varieties of hibiscus, make Subtropical Plant Paradise Yubujima Island a true island garden. With a circumference of only 2.15 km (1.3 mi) and an elevation 1.5 m (4 ft) above the sea, the island features guava, papaya, and mangrove trees that attract tourists from across the world. For the best way to get around the island, take the water buffalo taxi, a memorable ride on a buffalo cart. Besides the flower gardens, highlights include a butterfly garden, a collection of shells on display, and a restaurant offering noodle soups and curry dishes. Yubu Island lies some 400 m (1,350 ft) from Oriomote Island. Plan my trip to Yubu-jima Taketomi-cho with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Yubu island is around 21. 5 kg, is a small island of 1.5 meters above sea level. Can circumnavigate along the beach walk, trail and you can see in about an hour. Recommended is the bougainvillea garden. About 30 species of bougainvillea blooms all year round.

  • Good, flying butterflies too. You could see the pupa of the Golden tree. Slow walking is good.
