Land of the endangered Iriomote wildcat

With no airstrip and a lone coastal road, the island of Iriomote is as remote a place as one finds in Japan. Even so, adventure seekers of all ages can explore its dense subtropical forests, mangrove-lined waterways, rushing cascades and long curving beaches in a host of outdoor programs here at the island’s largest resort. Among them is an opportunity to see and learn about the legendary Iriomote wildcat, a protected species of leopard unique to the island.
