Kuroshio no Mori Mangrove Park

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...
  • Enjoyed nature at its best

    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.

    道の駅奄美大島住用に立寄るとここからマングローブ見学コースが用意されていました。今回はセグウェイツアーに参加した為、そのコースから少しだけ眺める事が出来ました。マングローブ原生林にもっと近付く為にはカヌーで回るコースが良さそうでした。
