Almost entirely covered in jungle, this is the right island for guests seeking adventure! Come enjoy Iriomote's lush nature.
Also known as the 'Galapagos of Japan', Iriomote Island is largely undeveloped, as most of the island is protected as Iriomote National Park. Home to the elusive Iriomote mountain cat, manta rays and water buffalo, the wild nature is what brings most visitors to its shores.
You can cruise or kayak in the mangroves, trek through the jungle, hop on a buffalo cart or ride across the beaches on horseback. At night, the view of the stars is truly stunning. Of course, the diving and snorkeling is also first rate, and in the spring and summer you may see mantas migrating!
