Izena Island is known for not having any venomous snakes on the Island. I always thought this was impossible since the surrounding islands all have venomous snakes. After five trips we finally found a Habu.
The Princess habu was found resting on a rock above a fresh water source.
The Hime habu was found October 9th 2016 on Izena Island. It was located at the Izena castle site.
A sign at the port welcomes visitors to to the beautiful Island. It states – no habu on the Island.
Be safe exploring the beautiful Islands of Okinawa.
