Star watching

     This is not a sightseeing spot, however, the night starlit sky in Iriomote is extremely beautiful.  At a clear and moonless night, there are innumerable stars in the heavens, it makes you realize that a planetarium we see in a city is an imitation.  How numerous the stars are!  We can see the Milky Way in the center of the night sky very clearly.  When you have a spare time at night, I recommend you to go to a breakwater before Maruma Beach.  Look up at the innumerable stars in the heavens in lying down on the breakwater like this, and you must be impressed by the mysterious beauty of the starlit sky in Iriomote.
