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

4.0
#7 of 37 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.

  • Ride buffalos shallow waters about 15 minutes from Iriomote Island, slowly and leisurely landed in yubu island. Is a small island approximately 2 km around the tropical atmosphere, Iriomote Island half-day sightseeing tour in 30 minutes time, surrounded by subtropical plants of the island could feel something missing, but some couldn't. And put a Lei of flowers, because it contains a photo of two flow-free time just was less. Alas it was Buffalo shake your ass, just pull the hard drive or something, I now say and thank you all for.
