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.

  • At crossing to yubu island from Iriomote Island. Views one became famous commercial power companies are out there. Flows through the calm, a nice time. Everyone can smile. I sunny was cloudy when I went, but the more I wonder-what I thought!

  • Passed to yubu Island, a subtropical Botanical Garden paradise? On becoming a tourist route to go. Places to visit greenhouses of tropical, subtropical Japan across the country and also because so much curiosity or interest; Large artificial pool (pond) on the left than it left the gate at the entrance and there "big cattle and cows for kids, 10, like hippos are so soaked in water and sleeping good feeling" Oh yeah cows was cow or buffalo. This is photo of the Memorial's method.

  • I went to 12/2016. Buffalo car ride from Iriomote Island, cross the island. Very love this Buffalo drive across 10 minutes very nicely because me peaceful mind. Across the island and throughout the island is in the Botanical Garden, walk, stroll along. Restaurants and cafés, you can relax. Buffalo car round trip price is included in the admission.
