Visit Iriomote Island, a jungle-covered island popular with nature lovers. The population of Okinawa's second-largest island remains relatively small, with just 2,000 permanent inhabitants and nearly 90 percent of the landmass covered in thick, lush jungle and mangrove forests. Attracting outdoor adventurers and nature enthusiasts, the habitats onshore and off support a varied population of animals, including the Iriomote Yamaneko (a wildcat only found on the island), and manta rays swimming around the coral reef. Take a diving trip with one of the many established tour operators, or kayak down the rivers of the island's interior.

  • I think this island is for activities. Canoeing and snorkeling are particularly popular. Anyway, it is recommended for the person who wants to enjoy the nature of Yaeyama. Because it is a large island, car rental, bus, accommodation and tour transfers are a means of transportation.

  • The island has a lot of activities of nature in the sea, mountains, beaches, animals, wild birds. Compared to two years ago, the number of hotels and tour companies increased, and while the development of the entire island has advanced and it has become convenient for sightseeing, I think that nature has been destroyed.
