Kuroshio no Mori Mangrove Park (黒潮の森マングローブパーク)

4.0

Other Leisure Facility / Other Outdoors Facility

A vast, primeval mangrove located a 70-minute drive from Amami Airport where visitors can come in contact with nature and enjoy outdoor activities year-round. In 2001, the mangrove was registered as part of the Roadside Station Amami Oshima Sumiyo facility. The second largest mangrove in Japan, the area is a habitat for rare plants and animals, including the Ryukyu ayu, a fish which has followed a unique evolutionary path. Canoeing through the thick mangrove is a particularly popular activity here. There’s also an outdoor recreation and relaxation space and an observatory offering a sweeping view of the primeval mangrove.

We’ve got a guide who speaks excellent English! It was fun and interesting. Observatory is worth to walk up. We went there in winter but long sleeve t-shirts was enough. There are about 15 people in...

We went with a group here and it was a good walk...not too strenuous and certainly not that scary. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the tranquility of being so close to nature.

カヌー体験がしたくて寄りました。
バスも走っていますがレンタカーがおすすめです。
約1時間のカヌー体験(2,000円)でのマングローブ探検隊は想像以上に気持ち良いものでした。
初めてのマングローブ内部への進入。外から見ている風景とは全く別世界でした。
ザ・自然。と言った感じです。適度な運動にもなり、終わった後の爽快感は格別でした。
カヌーの後にグランドゴルフを楽しまれている方も多かったです。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
