Taking a walk into the sea (with a horse) at the westernmost island!

Taking a walk into the sea (with a horse) at the westernmost island!
Yonaguni-jima is the westernmost inhabited island with population of 2000 which lies between Taiwan and Ishigaki-island.

The top to-do list in the island is horse riding at the shore. When the temperature is warm enough (May-Sep), you can even go into the breathtaking clear water with your horse. These horses are indigenous kind, small in size, very gentle and adorable. You will surely love this FANTASTIC experience!

As said, horse riding in the sea is the top To-Do though it has to be during May-Sep. You can enjoy either horse riding in the water or even swim with her, holding her tail.

This activity is run by a non-profit organization called "Yonaguni Fureai Hiroba." The organization aims to preserve Yonaguni-horse while providing various opportunities for local communities and tourists to interact with this beautiful indigenous speicies.
