I think I would have enjoyed this view point if I got there via automobile. We rode our bikes from ClubMed to the cape and that was a 90KM r/t of up/down hills. By the time we... read more

On a cold day there wasn't much to do, except hire a car and go for a drive. This is the northernmost point of Ishigaki-jima, and as such the sea swell was more pronounced on this cold, cloudy and windy day.

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

This is a lovely place to visit. Many taxi drivers take their passengers here to visit. Even if you are not hiring a car, take a taxi here as it very reasonable taxi fare and the view is excellent over the oceans with the beautiful coral. In the summer it has a lovely wind to cool you down. If you... More

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). Coastline here is more ragged and steep than most... More

Hirakubo is about 40 minute drive from the city centre. The drive itself is quite scenic so time passes by very quicky. There are few spots you might want to stop by along the way like the Tamatorizaki view point. I highly recommend that you only come here if you have rented a car as hiring a cab to here... More

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.
