Limited Time: Stay active in the rainy season! Discover Yambaru Campaign restart
2024.05.22~ End of Rainy Season

Our Discover Yambaru is a give-back program. With the announcement of the beginning of the rainy season in Okinawa, we are offering hotel in-house use coupons for up to 20% of the cost of experience programs recommended below. This campaign will be limited to until the end of the rainy season.

In Okinawa, it rarely rains all day long. There are periods of sunshine in between the weather clouds as they blow by. The water temperature is just right for marine sports like diving to be enjoyed. We also recommend guided nature tours where you can hear and feel the rain murmuring in a subtropical region. And the mud buggy experience will appeal to your sense of adventure.

Through our Discover Yambaru Campaign, we hope to encourage as many of our guests as possible to experience the natural beauty of the Yambaru region of Okinawa. With this in mind and with the mission of helping to revitalize the Yambaru area, we are offering this campaign for you to enjoy these experiences and also give more value to your hotel stay with cash-back vouchers for in-house use. Yambaru has been registered as a Natural World Heritage Site and has beautiful mangroves and unexplored forest areas. You can do some jungle kayaking or hiking through a forest while listening to a guide talk about the origins of the land, history and culture, and the current state of nature. You may also encounter rare creatures and plants in your adventures through this subtropical forest.

At Oriental Hotel Okinawa Resort & Spa, there are many ways to take advantage of the cash back vouchers. There are a number of restaurants with a wide variety of menu items. Or you can use the vouchers for doing some shopping in the KBC Shop or enjoying other facilites at our hotel such as the Spa. Please take this opportunity to expand your experience of Okinawa while enjoying our hotel facilities.

From Golden Week through the summer season, once you reach the upper parts of the river, you can get off the kayak and try some river trekking in the cool clear stream. Maybe you will see some river creatures like Ryukyu sweetfish or a giant eel.

The YONNA COURSE is a wide nature trail about 650 meters in length. The word Yonna means slow or leisurely and suggests that you can take a leisurely stroll at your own pace through the forest. This course is recommended for elderly people and for people using wheelchairs. It is a well-maintained trail where you can observe small birds and you can hear frogs croaking in the streams especially during the rainy season.

Yambaru Nature Trail Guided Walk Details

This is a 2 hour and 15 minute tour using an environmentally friendly EV bus with a local guide who knows Yambaru well. Yambaru is the 5th location in Japan to be registered as a Natural World Heritage Site and so this tour is called the Yambaru Golden 5 Train! The nature guide will take you to scenic spots where you can see giant fern trees and Japanese staghorn trees. And you will be able to get off the bus for a 15 minute walk through the forest and breathe in the extraordinary forest air!

Kesatsugawa Mangrove Kayaking Details

Four types of mangroves can be seen on the main island of Okinawa. Local guides help you to have fun while conveying the wonders of the natural environment. Coming to Okinawa, swimming in the ocean, and enjoying delicious Ryukyu cuisine are all great, but going on a kayak adventure will make your time even better!

Enjoy the charm of Okinawa that cannot be experienced in every day life. Rowing towards the sunset over the ocean on this sunset tour is a memory you will not forget. If you take the night tour, you will have a completely different impression from a daytime tour. At night when it gets dark, the air is calmer and you can hear the birds chirping and the murmuring of the river.
