Ishigaki

Ishigaki, the most populous island in the chain, features the country's southernmost city and acts as a transport hub for exploring the landmasses that surround.
Explore hidden gems such as Cape Hirakubozaki and Kondoi Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Yonehara Beach and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. There's much more to do: stop by Yurateiku Market, enjoy breathtaking views from Tamatorizaki Observatory, stroll around Kabira Park, and take in the waterfront at Nishi Pier.
