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

4.1
#6 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.

    Go across the ox draws Buffalo from Iriomote Island peacefully. Cartman's will while playing the 3 lines and tourism while singing a song. Cartman's ox got on my tune their own arrangements of songs by, this is also quite taste. Yubu Island across the whole leisurely takes in the jungle. And make a round dining room will have lunch. I'm really standing utility pole in shallow water.

    Is a one-day tours from Ishigaki Island. Yubu Island, there was time for exploring the park with lunch. The flowers because the weather was mostly cloudy and full of trees very much.
