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.
Visit Cape Hirakubozaki and Oganzaki Lighthouse for their historical value. Step out of the city life by going to Yonehara Beach and Kabira Bay. Spend the 4th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Yurateiku Market, take a memorable drive along Nagurao Bridge, kick back and relax at Sukuji Bathing Beach, and stroll through Akashi Beach.

Find out how to plan Ishigaki trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Toronto, Canada to Ishigaki is an approximately 22-hour flight. You'll lose 14 hours traveling from Toronto to Ishigaki due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Toronto in July: high temperatures in Ishigaki hover around 38°C and lows are around 32°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to Iriomote-jima.
