We had such a great time on the tour even though our guide did not speak much English. We started off kayaking to the start of the trail, then walked up towards the waterfall. The most amazing thing was that our guide decided to make...More

The views from the top are unforgettable: you get the jungle, the river, the ocean and the surrounding islands. Plus, swimming at the fall, just precious. Totally worth it.

Absolutely Beautiful! The trek to get to the falls is a lush jungle with rocks and water features. A must do if going to Iriomote Island. We love our guide Nao of Iriomote Osanp Kibun.. Great English speaking guide.

Getting here requires a little effort. It takes about 45 to 60 minutes clambering up a rocky path before you get to the foot of the waterfall. There are small plunge pools to swim in which is refreshingly good after the heat and humidity of...More

The 20 minutes hike to the waterfall could be considered a challenge to those who do not do much hiking. Once we got to the fall, we were so excited and jumped right into the cool water. Perfect place to spend a hot summer day.

We were staying over at Ishigaki, and decided to come over for the day. Our hotel recommended a 7 hour trekking and kayaking tour. Which included the Pinisara falls. The whole day was excellent, we saw lots of wild life and excellent views throughout our...More
