|The objective of the Iriomote Project, with studies of Iriomote island
as a model, is to provide useful information to island people everywhere
for the continuation and preservation of their prosperous and culturally
rich societies. Many videos and photographs are used in the project
studies. We believe the exhibit of these materials will be useful
for the understanding of people's lives and natural events on the islands.
The pictorial materials are also used for teaching. Videos and photographs
will be added as shooting and editing progress.
On this site, we try to express a feel of the nature in Iriomote
Island by visual contents. We will be very happy if you could feel
the heartbeat of the lives on a smal island.
