The Uminchu no Ie, a community stay and exchange center, has a community center attached to it, and when an event is coming up, local children and youth groups sometimes come to practice at night. Why don't you spend a wonderful evening listening to the night breeze of Shirahama and the croaking of frogs?

  • BBQ while relaxing and interacting with the people of Iriomote Island who have lived with nature.
