Description

Explore 3 different sides of Okinawa as you visit the islands of Iriomote, Yubu, and Taketomi on this grand sightseeing tour. From lush forest, rivers, and waterfalls to traditional Ryukyu villages and sandy beaches, you get a chance to experience the best sights these idyllic destinations have to offer.

The journey starts at Ishigaki port, where you pick up your tickets and a set of directions and information about the tour ahead. A ferry ride brings you to Ohara port on Iriomote, and then you set off to explore the paradise of mangroves and rivers. You can set out on a cruise along the Nakama River, check out one of the largest looking-glass mangrove trees in the world, and watch for the birds and reptiles that thrive amid the forest.

Next, climb aboard a carriage drawn by water buffalo to cross the shallow waters to tiny Yubu Island, which hosts a charming sub-tropical garden. Admire the shell house, butterfly garden, and more than 100 varieties of trees and flowering plants before you return to the ferry and move on to the island of Kohama.

After lunch on Yubu, it's time to visit Taketomi Island for a tour that shows its outstandingly preserved Ryukyu heritage. The island's charming village features plenty of traditional local charm, with winding coral sand roads and red-tiled roofs decorated with traditional shiisa figures. You can admire the colorful rows of wild poinsettias, bougainvillea, and hibiscus, go for a ride on a cart drawn by water buffalo, and visit a local craft museum that showcases local weaving techniques before you head back to the ferry for the return journey to Ishigaki Port.
