The World Natural Heritage forest - 📍Yambaru, Okinawa


Yambaru

When you hear Okinawa, you may think of ""summer"" or ""beach"". But here in the Yambaru area, north of Okinawa island, we do recommend the forest in Autumn.

In the forest of a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, you'll see rare plants while trekking. Especially lovely is the ""Heritiera Littoralis"" which has a huge root that looks almost like a wall!

The forest is just an 1.5-hour drive from Naha International Airport. Come and see this amazing World Heritage forest!
