Iriomote Wildlife Conservation Center Reviews
イリオモテヤマネコの剥製があり、無料で西表の生き物の生態を学べる所で、荒天のため急遽訪問することに。由布島からバスですぐ、県道からセンターへ向かう道の入口に「ただいま開館中」とあり、ほっとしながら歩いて向かいました。車ならすぐなのですが、雨も降る温度も湿度も高い緑の中、バス停からは500m程あり、徒歩では10分近くかかったような気がします。 12時ちょうどに着いたバスに乗って行ったところ、やっと辿... more »There is a stuffed Iriomote wild cat, and it is a place where you can learn the ecology of the creature scart of Iriomote for free, and it is decided to visit suddenly because of the stormy weather. A short bus ride from Yufu Island, at the entrance of the road from the prefectural road to the center, "It is now open", and I walked with relief. It's a short drive, but it's about 500m from the bus stop in the green with high rain and humidity, and I feel like it took almost 10 minutes on foot. When I got on the bus just after 12 o'clock, the center finally arrived at the center, which was not popular because of the notice "lunch break", and I was very disappointed in the situation where I could not even enter from 12 o'clock to 13 o'clock. While keenly aware of the importance of the investigation, I couldn't feel like waiting for an hour in front of the building, even if there were mosquitoes or benches, so I turned back the way I came and headed to the bus stop. If the weather was good, I thought about killing time at Gorabashi Road Park, which is about 300m in the direction of Ohara, but I couldn't beat the stormy weather and waited for the bus. On the way, two rental cars went back, and when I informed the person who came by bus before 12:30, he said that he would wait and visit. I hope that the signboard on the prefectural road will display lunch break if possible though the place where I want to go has increased at the time of Iriomote island revisiting. It is a valuable spot to enjoy in rainy weather, but there are few bus estours, so it seems that the use of a rental car is still good.
西表島の特別天然記念物であるイリオモテヤマネコのことを知るにはここが一番です。さすがに生体を見ることは出来ませんが剥製を見ることは出来ます。精悍な顔つきと体つき、そして美しい毛並みはまさに山の神様のようです。入場は無料です。 more »This is the best place to get to know the Iriomote Yamaneko, a special natural monument of Iriomote Island. It is possible to see the stuffed though the living body cannot be seen indeed. Fearless face, body, and beautiful hair line are just like the god of the mountain. Admission is free.
A small wild animal centre but free of charge. Spend 15 min. for visiting
30-60 min is plenty of time to see this fun and informative museum. Only 5-10% of signage is in English. But there are videos and interactive features that will make some sense. You will not see live cats here FYI. Nice air conditioning and bathrooms but no cafe or snack area. Great for older kids but most scientific details will have limited attraction for younger kids
