Called the Galapagos of the East, this subtropical island is covered by dense jungle for 90% of its land. Iriomote Island is the most dynamic in nature among the Yeyama Islands. Paved roads only run half way around, hindered by steep mountains and mangrove forests.

In the jungle live rarely seen animals including Iriomote Yamaneko, a nocturnal wild cat in the size of a house cat. Ohara Port and Uehara Port are the island's only entrance. Most of villas and resort facilities are located around Uehara Port. Fresh fruits such as mangos, pineapples, dragons and indigenous bananas are highly reccommended.
