Yanbarunba Sport Activities
At Yanbarunba, we focus on adventure activities within the Kunigami area. The activities ranges from Kayak and SUP board rentals or tours around our beautiful coasts as well as the pristine mangroves forest to bike tours and hiking through crystal clear rivers, waterfalls and of course the unique Yanbaru, a subtropical rainforest paradise with many endemic species of flora and fauna.
Our speed boat activities ranges from simple tours of the surrounding area to water sports like wakeboard, wake-surf and to make sure you get more out of your day we can tow your Kayaks to beauty spots where you can explore to your hearts content. Kids (big and small) are not forgotten either as we offer various fun and exciting rides that the whole family can enjoy.
We also offer dive tours suitable for all levels from total beginners to the more seasoned. Our knowledgeable and experienced English and Japanese speaking instructors will make sure you have an unforgettable experience.
For those of you who are more culturally minded we have a wide range of local cultural activities and tours. We highly recommend visiting the local speciality crafts such as pottery, glass making and fabric dyeing work shops. Visiting the national treasure of our village, Toshiko Taira, who has been making bashofu (banana leafy fabric) the traditional way for many decades is also a must.
Farming is another stable of the region so no tour would be complete without a visit to the local farms. You can enjoy wide ranging activities such as milking the cows to making butter as well as spend time with the farmers to learn how to tend to crops and understand the labour of love that goes into producing the region's revered fresh fruits and vegetables.
We also cater for other sea-based activities such as fishing and edible seaweed harvesting which you can enjoy back at our in house restaurant.
To make your stay more enjoyable we would be glad help you create your own personal activities itinerary based on your preference.
