Ishigaki

— 31 nights
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Island Countryside Settlement and Nawa Insect Museum Haimurubushi. Get outdoors at Nosoko Mape and Hairumubushi Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Ishigaki side-trips: Kuro-shima (Kuroshima Plaza, Iko Pier, &more), Kohama-jima (Kohama Seaport, Risonare Kohamajima Country Club, &more) and Taketomi-jima (Hamashima In Leaf & Hama Island). There's lots more to do: look for gifts at Yurateiku Market, take in the spiritual surroundings of Torinji Temple, contemplate the long history of Tojinbaka, and enjoy the sand and surf at Akashi Beach.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Ishigaki journey planner.

Land of the Rising Sun
Part of a volcanic archipelago that encompasses over 6,800 islands, Japan remains one of Asia's most fascinating tourist destinations, where a blend of modernity and tradition creates a look and feel completely different from any other place in the world. A tour of Japan lets you discover big cities filled with ancient temples and innovative skyscrapers, as well as quiet country landscapes dotted with castles, perfectly manicured gardens, cherry orchards, and primeval forests seemingly untouched by the hand of mass tourism. Many tourists on vacation in Japan devote lots of time to the country's unique cuisine, prepared with painstaking attention to detail and a genius for simple yet effective presentation.
