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

4.1
#4 of 49 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.

  • 2/28, tours in Iriomote Island went across. Where the original inhabitants lived in the typhoon disaster residents move in Iriomote Island, is uninhabited. Case is one of those little plants planted, grew up a rich plant seems became today's Botanical Garden. Across the island for the buffalos on the range. Buffalo drive is back. Ozzy manipulates Buffalo riding, you worked 3-wire. Buffalo is just like people all has name. When was the sea your 17-year-old male. Botanical Gardens, will bar bougainvillea greenhouse, butterfly garden the Buffalo area, shopping center and restaurants. Attractions, such as bright pink bougainvillea petals, some butterflies fluttered, seen its golden pupa is enough. You can have the time you loose good growing even tropical plants such as Palm.

  •  I stopped by on Ishigaki Island trip. Rent a car in Iriomote Island, to Buffalo. 15 buffalos to yubu Island depart at intervals.  It takes 15-the forgotten passage of relaxing time is 20 minutes fast in everyday life. Island arrival, description of the island and visit the subtropical botanical garden. Along the way, photography and water buffalo, purchased a two in one piece but does arm twisting. Then visit the Botanic Gardens restaurant juice your feast to the pond became the number flying Butterfly Conservatory, Buffalo 10 several breaks.  Even baby Buffalo, perfect shot. In the Buffalo car guide, I was also relaxing time with a 3 line play.

  •  Buffalo car ride so I went.    Rode a Buffalo car alone because it was slow to arrive, but sang while still playing 3-wire for me alone, I was happy. The entire island Botanical Garden, and take a stroll. Golden pupa was impressive. I saw a cat on the way, believe it or not and if asked I staff, told "is a House cat".
