Okinawa Iriomote Island And Yubu Island Half Day Tour

Visit the subtropical paradise Yubujima and Iriomote Island and experience riding a water buffalo cart

Explore the treasured gems of Okinawa, the islands of Iriomote and Yubu, on this exciting tour. Iriomote Island is Okinawa's second largest island. It is largely undeveloped, with nearly 90 percent of its land covered by dense jungle and mangrove forests. On the island, you'll take a cruise through the mangrove-lined banks of the Nakama River, followed by a buffalo cart ride to Yubu Island. Yubu Island hosts a charming subtropical garden. Here you can admire the butterfly garden, shell house, and more than 100 varieties of flowering plants and trees. You may also choose to visit the Yubu Botanical Garden during your free time.
