japan iriomote urauchigawa waterfalls

Once off the boat, I immediately entered a narrow path in the jungle. Walking through the forest was very nice. The path follows the stream of the river. After about twenty minutes, I arrived at a staircase on the right which gave access to an observation point. From that point, I had a view overlooking the forest and the waterfall Mariyudou. Another 10 minute walk and I got to the waterfall Kanbiree. Very refreshing! I followed the same path in the opposite direction to return to the boat dock. I waited a little bit sitting on a large rock for the boat to come. In the nearby woods, I was amazed to see small lizards with blue tail!!!
