We took a boat tour among this unspoilt stretch of river, and could then continue on foot for about one hour or so. Pretty interesting, but there wasn't all that much wildlife to be seen (compared to for example similar places we visited in Florida earlier this year, where there was abundant wild life). Still, well worth it!

We're in to our adventures: We hiked Fuji through the night last week, so this is really easy in comparison. It's a remote island with little to do but enjoy the remoteness - and this trip enables that. It's really hot and humid in August so wear breathable sports clothes and carry at least a litre of water each.

I took this cruise to see the giant Looking Glass Mangrove and it did not disappoint. The tour guide was apparently funny, but I do not know any Japanese. It was worth the time and money! I picked up a ticket at the building next to the Ohara Port Ferry terminal. They have limited times each day due to the... More

I visited the entrance of this Nakama River. The view of the river covered with mangrove was impressive, especially for their long roots sticking out from the river surface. You can enjoy the view of the river even from the bridge, Nakama Bridge, where you can see the statues of Iriomote wild cats.

I spent a chunk of New Year's Eve day paddling a kayak through wonderful mangrove forests along the banks of unspoiled Nakama River. Temps were comfortable (about 60F), winds were fair, and the sky was blue. It mattered little that my guide (a very nice guy!) didn't speak much English, as the experience was really all about the sights, sound,... More

We visited when the island was just catching the edge of Super Typhoon Francisco. Many of the attractions were closed down but the island is still accessible and awe-inspiring during this time.
