Create an itinerary including Iriomote Island
Visit Iriomote Island, a jungle-covered island popular with nature lovers. The population of Okinawa's second-largest island remains relatively small, with just 2,000 permanent inhabitants and nearly 90 percent of the landmass covered in thick, lush jungle and mangrove forests. Attracting outdoor adventurers and nature enthusiasts, the habitats onshore and off support a varied population of animals, including the Iriomote Yamaneko (a wildcat only found on the island), and manta rays swimming around the coral reef. Take a diving trip with one of the many established tour operators, or kayak down the rivers of the island's interior. By using our Iriomote-jima online trip itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Iriomote Island and other attractions in Iriomote-jima.

  • Iriomote is a remote island in Okinawa Prefecture but it's not that difficult to visit. Visitors first, must fly into Ishigaki then take a ferry to one of two ports on Iriomote. I stayed in Uehara...

  • Iriomote island was one of destinations where I was always dreaming to visit. The nature was unspoiled and local people were very relaxed without worrying so much even under the corona pandemic...

  • Amazing place.
  • I didn't expect that much for this island. It turns out, I really like it! Very beautiful and unique. Japan's newest world heritage in July 2021. Worth visiting! I wish I could see the yama-neko. You must rent a car here! Don't over speed more than40km/h because of yama-neko. Be careful!!
