Found nowhere else in the world but on Ishigaki and Iriomote islands, the endemic Yaeshima Palm Trees are a nationally protected plant species. The best place to see these native trees is at the Yonehara Palm Grove near Maibara village, where a short footpath takes you through the forest to see the palms towering 25 meters above your head.
