"Nature's Captivating Blend"

Ensconced in the turquoise waters of the East China Sea, the Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park is home to one of Japan's largest mangrove forests. The island that the park calls home is at the deep southern end of the country believed to have disjointed from the mainland several millennia ago. This phenomena is thought to have been responsible for the park's population of the endemic Iriomote Cat, whose lineage can be traced back to the neighboring landmasses. Apart from the exotic feline specie, Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park is home to several endemic plant species like the Yaeyama palm tree and the Macodes petola that complete its verdant environs. Designated as a National Natural Monument of Japan, the Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park's clear skies are often circled by Crested serpent eagles. Their gaze fondly overlooking the region's coral-rich blue waters that are patrolled by the manta rays.
