Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Okinawa Prefecture / Yaeyama-gun / Taketomi-cho / Iriomote-jima / Uehara
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.

毎年、西表島バカンスのために必ず利用する港です。しかも最近利用している民宿から歩いて10分弱の場所にありますので、よく遊びに行った帰り途中に、待合室のクーラーで涼んだりしています。今の離島ターミナルは、干満の差で生じる高低差をなくすため、言わばバリアフリーにする可動式の浮桟橋になっている点は便利です。 more »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.
高速船が欠航の時でも、港のターミナルは開いていますし、お土産屋さんも営業していました。 ターミナル内にはテレビもあったので、時間つぶしはできます。 more »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.
