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.

  • Buffalo cars passed to yubu island. In yufu island very tropical feeling. Be healed in Buffalo, tropical plants in Iriomote Island! I felt respawning. Mantas beaches are also very good.

  • Can a touristy place! Guide staff got the Buffalo.. and's photo 言yori for I-the promotion-of-our-isolated-small-town] the city, photos, guide to food, etc. No, most was from, but at least the information need of places to eat, etc.! No money to not be ❗ is the worst

  • Homemade gelato and snack shops, cloth Island teahouses in the Park Café. Best gelato is yummy, order tea while you talk to the clerk. Slow is, but I'm afraid Buffalo return time is close at hand and the stagier was. Is turned or a photo shoot that twice almost forcing a time is too long. There more quickly could you point to the tea take time to to-and I thought.
