Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Okinawa Prefecture / Yaeyama-gun / Taketomi-cho / Iriomote-jima / Pinaisara Falls
Looking like a long white beard hanging down towards a foaming pond, the 55 m (180 ft) drop of Pinaisara Falls makes is the city's highest falls. Accessible both by foot and by canoe, the location provides plenty of trekking, kayaking, and swimming opportunities capped by a view from the top of the falls. Some say the falls resemble a long white beard hanging down, which is how the site got its name. Experience the sights and sounds of rare birds and watch subtropical trees while sitting in the pool beneath the falls. The site begs for photos but the climate is tropical, so bring cases for cameras to protect them from the humidity here.

Pinaisara Falls Reviews
生憎の雨空。 雨空でも楽しめると聞いてマングローブカヌーツアーに参加。 マングローブの森をカヌーで遡り、20分ほどのトレッキングで滝に到着。 滝壺で水遊びした後はツアーガイドか準備してくれた温かい八重山そばでランチという充実したツアーでした。 ツアー参加料1人14,000円程でしたが、価値はあったと思います。 more »The rain sky of the hate. I heard that you can enjoy even in the rain and sky, so i took a mangrove canoe tour. We canoeed back through the mangrove forest and arrived at the falls by a 20-minute trek. After playing in the water in the basin, it was a full-time tour of lunch near the warm Yaeyama that was prepared by a tour guide or. It was about 14,000 yen per person for the tour, but I think it was worth it.
西表島のアクテビティの中でもこの滝を訪れるのは非常に人気が高い。様々なツアーが出ているが山道に慣れていれば個人で行くことも可能です。当方は干潮時刻を見計らって河口部から歩いてアプローチ、滝壺を訪問した後に山道をたどって滝上まで行きました。なにも遮るものがない断崖の上からの眺めは壮観ですが転落注意。 歩きに自信の無い方は周回道路からでも滝を遠望できます。日本離れした光景だと思います。 more »It is very popular to visit this waterfall even in the actety of Iriomote Island. There are a variety of tours out there, but if you are familiar with the mountain path, you can go by yourself. We walked from the mouth of the river to see the low tide time, approached, followed the mountain path after visiting the basin, and went to the top of the waterfall. The view from the top of the cliff with out of the way is spectacular, but it is a cautionary note. If you don't have confidence in walking, you can see the waterfall from the roundabout. I think it's a scene that left Japan.
Awesome waterfall that's worth a quick tour. Pinaisara means "old man beard" in Japanese, apparently. It's named as such because, from a distance, the falls look like the beard of an old man. I recommend hiking to the bottom of the falls to swim first before making the 20 minute hike to the top of the falls to take in the view.
We did a day tour kayaking and then hiking to the bottom and top of the falls. The experience of the river and jungle hike were really memorable despite the amount of tourists. Fully recommended, including going to the top of the falls, the view of the jungle, the beach, and the ocean is unforgettable.
