Hi there, this is MANO from IKB.
I’ve been to Iriomote Island last weekend, and it was GREAT.
Unfortunately, we’ve only seen a blue sky once while the tour due to the rainy season.
But, when we dived into the ocean, such weather didn’t matter at all!
Spotted garden eels are too common to introduce in Okinawa.
Among six species of crown fish that can be seen in Japan, we could see four of them this time^^
Iriomote Island is famous for its coral reefs.
You can see various kinds of unique corals here.
Lucky us! 4 manta rays showed up!!
After the diving, it’s happy yum yum time with Okinawa foods☆
On the last day of the trip, we enjoyed mangrove kayaking.
Did you know that a word “mangrove (in Japanese)” isn’t a name of these trees? By the way, I didn’t know lol
Mangrove trees grow like this.
Say, cheeeese~~ in front of the Pinaisara Fall, the highest waterfall in Okinawa.
Thanks to the wonderful nature and people on the Island, we had so much fun!
The next Mano-Omote tour will be on November 23-26, 2023.
Don’t miss it ;)!!
