10 day journey


trip_over, originally uploaded by amakusavibe.

To the very south of Okinawa Prefecture there is a group of islands known as the Yaeyama Islands. Among these islands the gem that really shines is one known as the Japanese Galapagos: Iriomote Island. Iriomote has a circumference of 130 km and is famous for mangroves, sea turtles, virgin tropical forests, Suonoki: a tree with huge buttress roots that appear to crawl on the ground, coral reefs and an endangered species of wild cat. Here is a rough map of where we paddled during our 10 day trip.
