Yonaguni Island


Overview of Yonaguni Island

“Dive deep and explore the majesty of the seas”

As the most remote of the islands in Okinawa, Yonaguni Island is difficult to get to but it’s worth visiting the last place in Japan to view the setting sun. Its deep waters are home to majestic sea creatures like the hammerhead and whale sharks and mysterious underwater ruins known as the Yonaguni Monument. On land are the unique one-meter tall horses called the Yonaguni horses.
