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.

  • It is a port that is always used for vacations on Iriomote Island every year. Moreover, because it is in the place of less than 10 minutes on foot from the inn which has been using recently, it cools off in the air conditioner of the waiting room on the way back to often go to play. It is convenient that the present remote island terminal is a movable floating pier which makes it barrier-free so to speak to eliminate the difference in height caused by the difference of the drying.

  • Even when the high-speed ship was canceled, the terminal of the port was open and the souvenir shop was open. There is also a TV in the terminal, so you can kill time.
