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. Plan your visit to Pinaisara Falls and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Iriomote-jima trip itinerary app.

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.
