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

(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lentaqaanabi enter highway a little place on the right. Parking is also free because it was December, tourist office in Buffalo car smoothly, landed on the island of yufu. The entire island botanical gardens, in a little restaurant. There, such as tropical and lush tropical plants, water buffalo. And then exit on the coast is around and sea view. It's invigorating.

  • Surrounded by subtropical vegetation is very beautiful. It was especially wonderful bougainvillea garden. Photo taken on an assembly line but tour guests come thick and fast, so is a little disappointing.

  • 從西表島碼頭大概坐三十分鐘巴士到達坐水牛車的地方,坐過來後就進入植物園內自由活動,這裡有少許動物,有一個溫室,一個蝴蝶園及一個很美的海灘. 另外餐廳的便當很好吃  more »
