Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • 500 yen bought in yubu Island hibiscus plants. To chose one red flower blooms yellow. Yubu island was okay, but the long-awaited souvenir sorry. So 3 stars.

  • Smoke was so cool and upon entering the room, souvenir shop and toilet, a Chair for the rest soon. Go straight ahead and go in the garden. Buffalo one aisle, takes a picture (1,300 yen. Purchase freedom). Duck, butterfly garden, where you can enjoy too. 1 hour even if, like around 10 minutes.

  • Buffalo car the first noticeable is a pond to enjoy the holiday were off-duty Buffalo. And then the beaches of the Museum's Butterfly Garden and bougainvillea gardens, shellfish, manta rays, and slowly looking past in just about an hour. Stands on the site of the elementary school of the village have been around and imagine living landscape at that time. It is something that I feel very strange.
