In terms of fun factor, definitely 10/10. We had tons of fun canoeing and swimming in the cold water. However we want to point out that it is not safe to hike wearing wetsuit shoes, no matter the fitness level, you should let the group wear proper hiking boots. Food was simple

Everything went smoothly, and we appreciated the guides' approach a lot. They were both soft spoken, with great sense of humor, yet when it came to safety, there was no compromise. They also took the time to point out wildlife along the way, which would have been easy to miss

Great experience! Well organized day trip! It would have been even better if the waterfalls at Iriomote were included.
Taketomi island and the meal at Yubu were great! Would have loved to see the waterfalls at Iriomote.
