See the true nature of a place nominated as a World Heritage site
There are many precious creatures living in the subtropical jungles of Iriomote! The nocturnal creatures make an appearance once the sun gowns down. Search for plants and animals that can only be found in the subtropics!
There are hardly any man-made lights on Iriomote, and it has been recognized as the very first "Starry Sky Protected Area" in Japan. It is also a world-renowned starry sky spot! The view of the night sky from an outer island is spectacular! It is stunning scenery that you have to see at least once!
You can't experience the true Iriomote on a day trip alone, but you can witness it with your own eyes on this tour!
