Description

Iriomote is densely forested, with vast stretches of mangroves. The island is traversed by rivers, the Urauchi being the longest river in Okinawa, and beautiful waterfalls. After taking the ferry from Ishigaki Ferry Terminal to Uehara Port (or Ohara port in the winter months) on Iriomote Island you will be met by our driver and transferred by coach to the Urauchi River to take a cruise up river through the vast unspoiled jungle and mangrove plantations. From there you disembark and walk through the forest (approximately half an hour) to the Maryudo falls. There will be an option to walk further on to Kanpire Falls (an additional 15 minutes each way). The forest walk is sometimes uphill, but not too demanding, and you will be able to catch sight of small waterfalls and much of the flora and fauna of the island on the route. Animals, birds, reptiles, butterflies and fireflies are found in abundance on the island, in the surrounding sea and the rivers. There are reputedly some 400 types of fish in the Urauchi River alone. You return on foot and then by boat to the original starting point on the Urauchi River, and take a bus ride to Kitchen Inaba for lunch.


After lunch, you will be transported by bus to the famous Star Sand Beach, famous for its star-shaped sand, beautiful setting and quality of bathing and snorkeling. After a brief stop at the beach, we transfer to Mihara. A short distance away from Iriomote lies Yubu Island. The entire island comprises a sub-tropical garden, containing over 100 types of trees, a butterfly garden and a shell house. The trees which can be admired include the 10 varieties of local palm trees, many fruit trees and many flowering plants, including 30 varieties of hibiscus. Access to the island is by way of a carriage drawn by water buffalo, which gently wade through the shallow water to the island. You will have time to relax and explore the gardens on Yubu before we return to Ohara Port and then back to Ishigaki Port. A great day of adventures, with so many different natural experiences.
