One of the three ports from which you can start exploring Iriomote island, Uehara is a small-town ferry terminal with a small supermarket, a few restaurants, and a petrol station renting scooters and cars. On windy days, the port may be closed, you can still take buses to other nearby ferry ports. You can snorkel and explore the beach north of the port, Hoshizuma no Hama, known for its coral and star-shaped sand. You can also find waterfalls just north of the port. Keep an eye out for information tables about the Iriomote cat, a subspecies of the leopard that lives only on this island.

  • There is a supermarket and a dining room around the port, so you can arrive a little early for shopping and eating. There are a lot of chairs in the waiting area. There was also a small shop, and there were souvenirs. From here you can go to Ishigaki Island and Hatoma Island.

  • I wanted to buy souvenirs in Iriomote Island, but there is only a shop in the port. As far as I could see, it was about local salt and cookies. Of course, there are many local things such as fruits and vegetables, but when it comes to souvenirs, it is difficult. In the end, i made cookies (local salt is used).
