Iriomote Island

At a glance

Iriomote Island is the second largest island in Okinawa Prefecture. The island has garnered a reputation as the Galapagos of the East as nearly 90% of the island is covered by subtropical primeval forests that are largely undisturbed. The island is home to many nationally protected animal species including Iriomote cat and crested serpent eagle. The island is considered a valuable asset in many ways including for academic research. In 2016, the entire island of Iriomote was designated as a national park.
Visitors are encouraged to get around by car, including taking local buses or taxi, or renting a car for traveling along the peripheral road that covers the northern half of the island. Besides popular outdoor activities that are typically available in Okinawa's remote islands, such as diving and fishing, visitors can also choose to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature through a number of themed tours including mangrove tours and gorge climbing.
Lately, Iriomote Island has become known for its villages that are only reachable by boat, as well as music events on water, making it an attractive destination for travelers from far and wide.
