Utara Tanko Reviews
ジャングルに戻りつつある炭鉱の廃墟が美しいです。ガジュマルがレンガの鏡台に絡まるさまは南の島の旺盛な植物の力を否が応でも見せつけられるようです。しかしそんな美しい風景とは対象的に現地にある炭鉱の説明看板を読んでいると暗澹とした気分になってきます。この地で命を落とした方を思うと自然と頭が下がります。 more »The ruins of the coal mine returning to the jungle are beautiful. Gajumaru's entanglement in the brick mirror stand seems to show the power of the vigorous plants of the southern island. However, such a beautiful scenery makes me feel gloomy when I read the description signs of the coal mines in the area. When I think of people who lost their lives here, i naturally fall in my head.
浦内川の観光船の発着場の脇から散策路が続いています。浦内川から別れてウタラ川沿いを歩いてゆくと、観光船やカヌーの華やいだ声が遠くなってゆき、樹木に埋もれてゆこうとする炭鉱跡に着きます。トロッコ列車の橋梁らしき構造物のなかには木の根っこにすっかり埋もれているものもあります。観光地やマリンスポーツなどとは異なる西表の過去を感じることが出来ます。 more »The walking path continues from the side of the departure and departure point of the sightseeing boat of Urauchi River. When you walk along the Utara River after breaking up from the Urauchi River, the gorgeous voices of tourist boats and canoes become distant and you reach the ruins of a coal mine that is buried in trees. There is the one completely buried in the root of the tree in the structure which seems to be the bridge of the trolley train, too. You can feel the past of Iriomote, which is different from tourist attractions and marine sports.
