After you take a lecture about the weather, the natural environment of the area, the tour schedule and other necessary matters, start a jungle trekking heading to Yutsun Fall which is located in the central part of Iriomote Island. The area around the fall is uninhibited, thus you can fully enjoy the unspoiled nature.

Trek in the jungle slowly following your guide’s instructions. On the way, you will see the awesome nature and scenery that you can only see on Iriomote Island.

After about two-hour trekking, Yutsun Fall will come into your sight. This overwhelming fall has triple stepped structure and is surrounded on three sides by mountains. You can refresh yourself in the plunge pool. Meanwhile, your guide will prepare a delicious Yaeyama Noodle lunch.

Next, you will head for the upper side of the waterfall. It will take about a half an hour to climb up. On the top, you will see a breathtaking view of mountains, jungles and mangroves and the blue ocean. Because Yutsun Fall is located at much higher level than the popular Pinaisara Fall, the area is less commercialized.
