Okinawa on Two Feet

Walk Japan, a leader of specialised tours of Japan, has introduced the seven-day Yaeyama: Okinawa Voyage, which explores the remote islands of Ishigaki and Iriomote in the Yaeyama group of islands in Okinawa, the furthest southern point of Japan.  

 

Walk Japan, which was described by National Geographic as “one of the 200 Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth”, has put together a small group tour that departs on June 14, 2015 and explores the sub-tropical environment and wildlife of Ishigaki and Iriomote, with the opportunity to encounter one of the world's rarest felines, the Iriomote cat.  

 

Kayaking, paddle-boarding and snorkelling are the main means of transport on this tour as it explores the mangroves, slow-flowing rivers, sub-tropical jungle interiors of the destinations, uninhabited islands, coral reefs, deserted sandy beaches, cays and a village rarely visited by outsiders.  A key part of Walk Japan's tour ethos is to ensure their clients return home from Japan with a greater understanding of Japanese customs and culture.  In Okinawa, the locals are especially known for their unique music, which the locals say, combined with their healthy diet, contributes to a laid-back lifestyle. From GBP2,010(US$3,240) per person, including local expert guides for kayaking, snorkelling and paddle boarding; equipment hire; six nights' accommodation with meals; and transfers. www.walkjapan.com
