We didn't have much expectations going to this place and were pleasantly surprised. We first had lunch there (cheap and excellent noodles). The place feel somewhat like Hawaii. The gardens are gorgeous and offer a variety of plants and a good glimpse at the mangrove....More

The palm trees here are amazing. We loved this jungle. So many beautiful flowers and a great vista if you get to the top.

I cannot believe this place is even listed as an attraction...a boardwalk path took about 5 minutes to walk around...such waste of time as it was an hour bus ride each way...

Cute little walk into the "jungle" with impressive tall palm trees. Very lush and green surroundings. Two or three shops just outside selling some refreshments. We went here on a rainy day, really felt like a rainforest!

午前中に空港到着した後、玉取崎展望台、平久保崎灯台へドライブし、川平湾へ南下する道すがらに立ち寄りました。特段説明してくれる人がいないのですが、観光タクシーで回っている人達と一緒になったので、ヤエヤマヤシがどういう特徴があるのかと言ったことを聴きながら観光できてラッキーでした。茶店で搾りたてのサトウキビジュースとマンゴーを用いたジュースをいただきましたが、フレッシュで美味しかったです。

Having missed our bus back to Ishigaki City from Yonehara Beach, we stumbled on this attraction totally by accident, but I'm glad we did! There is a board walk through the jungle to a grove of incredibly tall palm trees that are unique to the...More
