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. By using our Iriomote-jima online trip itinerary builder , you can arrange your visit to Iriomote Island and other attractions in Iriomote-jima.

  • I took a tour in the afternoon. The finish was a beautiful waterfall in the tour that even beginners could enjoy. The guide was very kind and helpful. It was a day to enjoy Iriomote Island. I want to do it again.

  • It was my second time and i went into the jungle for the first time. Because the cellular phone is also out of range, it becomes the sense that it was thrown out in nature, but it was remembered fondly about the thing of childhood which was not convenient like the present age.
