Escape to Kunigami Village

By Jun Ikemura

A super panoramic view from Kayauchi Banta.

Located in the northern most part of the main island of Okinawa is the quiet village of Kunigami. It is an area mostly left untouched by the fingerprints of modern society. Here you will find an abundance of nature, both on the ocean front and within the jungle enclosed. At its apex is Hedo-misaki, a rocky, narrow peninsula that sits in the middle of the East

China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. For those who wish to get away from the tumultuous busy lifestyle, Kunigami Village is an escape. Ninety percent of the village is forest and is currently home to many National Protected Species, such as the Okinawa Rail and the Pryer’s Woodpecker. It’s about 194.8 square km in area and is the 5th largest municipal

body on Okinawa. From Naha City, Kunigami is 100km to the north, but just 28km south from the next prefecture – Yoron Island of Kagoshima Prefecture, which can be visible on a clear day. Kunigami is also home to the highest mountain on the island, Mount Yonaha at 503m. This is the second highest mountain in the entire prefecture, with Mount

Omoto of Ishigaki Island edging Yonoha by about 22 meters at 535.5 meters in elevation. Kunigami overall has many mountains and river streams. Its most famous waterfall is Hiji Waterfall on the Hiji River. If you love nature, then Kunigami will not disappoint you. Hiking, canoeing, bird watching are just a few of the many adventures you can partake in.

Spots of Kunigami Village 1. Kayauchi Banta

Kayauchi Banta (Cliff)

is located at near Hedo Point. Height above sea level averages about 80m. The view from this location is breathtaking. 2. Hiji Waterfall

Hiji Waterfall is located within the forest of Kunigami Village and is one of most famous waterfalls on Okinawa. It stands about 26m in height and is the tallest waterfall on the

Okinawa main island. It is about 1.5 km from the parking area to the waterfall with an average hike between 45 minutes to an hour. Though a well-laid out path exist, the hike up to the waterfall may pose a challenge for small children and senior citizens. Expect to get a little wet along the way. A change of clothes is recommended. 3. The Okinawa Rail

Observatory

Elevated above in the Kunigami Forest is a giant observatory shaped like that of an Okinawa Rail. It is about 10m in height and has a wonderful panoramic view of the horizon with the ocean and the sky in the backdrop.

The Okinawa Rail

An Okinawa Rail named "Kyon Kyon" is being fed at the Kuina-no-Mori facility.

The Okinawa Rail, also known as the Yanbaru Kuina in its native dialect, is a ground-living bird belonging to the Rallidae family of bird species. It is a flightless bird having an average body length of 35cm. Its most notable features are its red eyes, orange beak, and its white stripes laced along its breast. Its first recorded discovery was in 1981 in the northern forest of the Okinawa main island. The name ‘Kuina’ is the Japanese

equivalent to the word rail. The term ‘Yanbaru’, a word meaning ‘northern forest’ in the Okinawan dialect, was affixed to describe where the bird was found – hence, the name, Yanbaru Kuina. Since then, the bird has become an iconic fixture in Okinawan culture. Statues and cartoon characters of this bird can be seen all over the island. Because the Okinawa Rail cannot fly, it is vulnerable to other wild animals, particularly the mongoose, which is

not native to Okinawa. The mongoose was brought here long ago to prey upon the Habu which where endangering human lives. In an ironic twist of fate, the mongoose, a daylight animal, did not often cross paths with the Habu, a nocturnal creature by nature. Instead, it would feast on the rails’ eggs and younglings during the day, severely damaging their numbers. Deforestation and deadly vehicle run-ins have also contributed to the dwin-

dling population. Its numbers were so greatly reduced that they were added to the endangered species list and designated a national treasure to help preserve its numbers. Education and safe-driving awareness campaigns are being carried out by government agencies and volunteers, who arduously work day and night to keep the Okinawa Rail safe.

Entry costs for adults is ¥500 and ¥200 for kids 18 and under.

Horoscope May. 10th ~ May. 24th You should keep aiming at fulfilling your dreams. Although there have been opportunities in the past, the time is right now. You should not be shy, but bravely ask what you really want. Pay attention to your money as there are extra unforeseen expenses ahead. You don’t want to get tangled in a mess like that.

The coming weekend and days after that are full of strong emotions, and there is a possibility that you could end up stating your points of view stronger than you’d intended. Make sure that you know the facts. Your life is going to become easier once you go through certain facts, although some changes are inevitable.

Although you consider yourself a sane and reasonable person, the fact is that not everyone thinks the same as you. People who have not been in the same situation as you do not necessarily understand your attitude. That’s the reason why you should not waste your time to explain, why a certain matter is so important to you.

You have much more knowledge than you give yourself credit for. You also are mature enough to see your life as it is. You should be ready to seize an opportunity when one arises. You are also able to help your friends without being obnoxious. You should trust in your heart and ability. Your inner voice tells you what’s right.

A fact of life is that there are both ups and downs, but you are not quite sure where you stand in the scheme of things. Try to relax and enjoy the ride. That will give you energy for the tribulations ahead. It is very important at this time that you discuss openly with your closest friends and family about your problems.

You feel like you are facing a big and important change in your life, but the problem is that you are not sure what this challenge actually is. You should be optimistic, and concentrate on possibilities that this change could open up. The only thing you really need is trust on your abilities and patience and that’s not too much to ask.

You have to decide whether a certain person among your friends needs your helping hand. But you have to approach the matter delicately. A friendly stance is better than aggressive, and that also ensures a long-lasting and satisfying solution to the problem. You have to show patience at home and avoid hurting others’ pride.

14

You are facing a task that will take much energy and time, but you should still bet on it. Whether this has something to do with your home or work, optimism is the key. Trying to cut corners is not goo, and would only confuse others involved in this. Strong determination is the right attitude that will propel you forward.

In your everyday routines, it is easy to lose sight of what is really important. Something is going to divert your attention from a matter of urgent importance. You have to prioritize everything you have to do, and especially you have to ignore those who make the most noise in order for you not to deviate from the correct path.

You should concentrate on plans that are highly possible to realize. Everyone has a tendency to just drift into situations without thinking why and how. Instead, you should decide what are the important things in your life, and what are you going to do about them. Using your imagination effectively is also important.

You must trust in your feelings. Think about the time when your life was simpler. Would it be possible to regain your attitude of the time? You should go through the facts of your current life and sort them out in the order of importance. Although you might lack self-confidence just now, you still have your wise brain to use.

You should avoid making life too complicated. Balancing your life between work and home would be easier if you just did your best without taking on too much stress. Mulling things over and over in your head or even with your friends does not guarantee good results. You should trust in your experience and intuition more.
