2. Re: where to stay in Ishigaki?

The question was posted long ago, but it is likely asked again and again, so I'll post a few general hints. :-)

The big hotels all advertise heavily and are easily found on the internet via keywords like "ishigaki" and "hotel". For budget travelers, the wikitravel page looks like a good resource (it not not only reports low-cost accommodation but offers plenty of advice about other low-cost touristic options, as well):


Additionally, the Ishigaki Tourism Association has a listing of hotels and guesthouses (hostels), and they provide the listing in English and other languages by way of machine translation (meaning, some information will be garbled, but you get at least the contact information correctly and can follow up on your own) - their English page is here:

…transer.com/category/tomaru/ (on this page the low-budget accommodation listings are called "lodging" - meaning, "guesthouses with meal service" - and "room without meals" - meaning "guesthouses without meal service").

Travelers who don't plan to rent a car may perhaps want to stay in the town center from where it is easy to get to the ferry terminal (for reference: the central town area includes sections called Arakawa, Hamasaki, Hirae, Ishigaki, Okawa, Misaki, Shinei, and Tonoshiro).
