Mangroves (Yanbaru)
Yanbaru is a heavily forested area in northern Okinawa, famous for rare wildlife, unusual birds and lush mangroves. Take a walk on the wild side!
A completely different world from Okinawa's famous beaches, this verdant subtropical rainforest is definitely off the beaten track. Take a kayak through the mangroves, or join a trekking or canyoning tour, stopping to see Yanbaru's famous birds (like the Okinawan Rail or Okinawan Woodpecker) and refreshing waterfalls. Come see a different side of the island.
