Iriomote Island, said to be "the last unexplored area in Japan," is simply overflowing with nature. The mangrove forests of Iriomote are like a different world. Here, you can experience the depths of the jungle, making you wonder "Is this really Japan?" Stand up paddleboard, or "SUP," is the way to enjoy such nature in style. It's a new activity of standing on the board and rowing (of course you can enjoy sitting). On the other hand, canoeing is the easiest way to experience the overflowing nature of Iriomote. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from small children to seniors. Let's go to the "Lucky Waterfall" by SUP or canoeing, and jungle trekking!
