Today, you will visit the ancient temple Kiyomizu-dera, Kyoto’s famous Golden Pavilion Kinkaku-ji, Fushimi-Inari-taisha, with its picturesque, 4 km hill-climbing pathway lined with thousands of red torii.
Today, you will be transferred to Itami Airport in Osaka and fly to Ishigaki Airport.
Ishigaki Island is a prominent island in Okinawa, and serves as the transportation hub for the Yaeyama islands, primarily accessed by boat from the Ishigaki boat terminal.
On this tour, you also visit Taketomi-jima Island, Kuro-shima Island, and Iriomote-jima Island.
Among the highlights will be one of the Japan’s “top three views” – an unforgettable grand vista upon which you will gaze at Kabira Bay – extensive limestone cave formations, forested mountains with views across stunning expanses, the Tamatorizaki Observation Point, Ibaruma Bay, the emerald blue ocean with its coral reefs, and Yonehara Palm Tree Groves (palm forest), which is both a botanist’s and nature lover’s delight, featuring many types of palm trees and more. As you can see, Ishigaki is definitely a place worth visiting!
Today, you will explore Taketomi Island, a small island about 9 km in circumference, and about 10 minutes by high speed ferry from Ishigaki-jima.
You will see brightly coloured flowers along a road that parallels white coral sands. The sight of slowly moving buffalo-drawn carriages accompanied by the sounds of the Okinawa sanshin (the predecessor to the sanshin most of us know today) creates a melodic soundtrack which completes the scene perfectly. Taketomi-jima is still pure, beautiful, and unadulterated Okinawa, a place which has to be seen to be believed.
Kuroshima Island is also a charming small Island. It is known for beautufiul coral reefs and beaches, which are habitual egg-laying grounds for various species of Sea Turtles. Famous as an Island is cows. Comparing the human population of 220, over 3,000 beef cows are raised here.
You’ll explore around beautiful Kuroshima Island by bicycle with your guide and visit Nakamoto beach at the west coast and you can do some snorkeling. There is Nishinohama beach to visit also.
Iriomote-jima is the second largest island (after Okinawa-Honto) in the prefecture, and over 90% of its surface is covered with tropical and subtropical virgin forest. Deep in the vast jungles grow Iriomote’s wild cats and other rare and cherished wildlife, as well as uncountable rivers supporting large mangrove stands, grand vistas punctuated by vigorous waterfalls, and so much more. This degree of big nature is naturally conducive to eco tourism activities such as canoeing and trekking. The breathtaking sights to behold here on Iriomote-jima just may challenge your preconceptions about what Japan is! You’ll also make a quick jaunt to nearby Yubu-jima, a small island next to Iriomote-jima, which is only 15m above sea level and 2.15km around. Buffalo carriages are used for sightseeing, which is the perfect pace to take in the slow life here. You will return Iriomote-jima for tonight’s lodging
You will depart from Ishigaki airport to International airport in Tokyo and change for a flight. The adventure is over, but we are sure you will never forget it!
