Then descend to its base where you can swim in the natural pool below.

The trip commences with a ferry ride to Uehara port on Iriomote, . You will then be transported to the nearby kayaking base. Full instructions and appropriate waterproof gear for kayaking will be provided before the tour start. Taking a gentle kayaking adventure for approximately an hour along the Mare and Hinai rivers, both lined with mangrove trees and the wildlife which inhabit the forest. Alight at the base station and then have a jungle hike for approximately 50 minutes through the forest to the top of the Pinaisara Falls. En route the guide will explain and point out the various plants, trees and wildlife.
