Visited the park at late hours. Foggy on the way up to the mountains. Awesome view once you reached the top. Viewing stations overlooking the whole of Ishigaki. We came on a slightly rainy day. Rain and clouds adds to the beauty of nature.

I took my children-4 & 7 year-olds- to the kid play area of Banna Park, and boy was I impressed! Don't think of it as a normal playground, it's much much bigger with lots of fun structures to climb, slide down from and enjoy! You can easily spend 2-3 hours here having a blast- afterwards when you're thirsty, there are... More

My six year old son had so much fun at this park! It had just the right amount of fun/risk taking/skill for my active son. It is only in Japan that you will see super long metal 'roller' type slides and large concrete slides with lots of climbing involved! We went at around 6pm and it was nice and cool... More

This is 200-300 meters high hill. From here you can see the main city and the islands surrounding it. It is worth to stop here on the way back from Kabira bay. After few pictures it's time to go back, not much to do around.

Very large park with different zones, best way is to go through the park by renting a car. The bird house in the shape of an egg is really special. Not many people you surely can enjoy a nice day here.

Banna Park is a large park located just north of Ishigaki city. If you are not from Japan and have kids, this is a great park to visit. If you are visiting during the summer months, be advised that it might be better to visit close to sunset as the sun makes some of the metal play equipment quite hot.... More

I love nature, but I don't have enough time to enjoying my time here.! Banna park is very large so it's will take 3-5 hours to spent time here.! It's good for walking, running, and animals photo hunting here.! If you spent more time in Ishigaki I think this place will be good for you to more closely to nature!

Several lookout points offers unobstructed views of the island from an elevated location. There were several species of birds that we could hear in the trees and saw several people jogging on the park road. It's a real nice spot to picnic so bring a meal with you as well.

This is a very beautiful park with many places to see the nature from unique vantage points. A car is essential and some binoculars are recommended. We took it all in on an overcast day and appreciated the nights, sea and wildlife (falcon hanging out on a power pole). Fortunately there is little commercialization (so bring your own whatever). Restrooms... More

A huge, gorgeous, superbly maintained park amidst the jungle. If you have half a day you will enjoy walking around the park to see the various artistic installations (many climbable structures that kids will love) and the gorgeous plants and trees. The paths throughout the park are extremely wide and smooth, perfect for cycling or skating. This place sets the... More
