Sightseeing of Iriomote Island

    In Iriomote island, there are not so many tourist facilities unlike in the Okinawa Island.  Thus it is not a place where we play in spending much money like the other general tourist resorts, frankly speaking, a behavior that strutting around a beach with a boom box or a surfboard does not match an atmosphere of the island.  However in contrast, we can enjoy its plain great nature very much.  Well, I will introduce on the points to see in the island with a little bit of my dogmatism and prejudice.
