Nice trip to the lighthouse. Good view. Small shop and toliet facilities there. Worth it if just for the drive

There is no shortage of amazing coastline views on Ishigaki. This one is among the best ones, for sure. If you rent a car, it should be an easy drive with a few spots to stop and take beautiful photos along the way (Sunset Beach, then some nice hills with pastures).

Hirakubozaki Lookout was far from the city centre, but worth visiting. We brought lunch and had it on the steps down to the lighthouse. It was a nice day.
