Although there is nothing at the lighthouse itself but the drive is very nice and on the way it is possible to stop in different view points and take some walks to beach or mangrove areas. Lovely quiet scenery.

You need to rent a car to visit this beautiful place but totally worth it. Walking up the slope you start seeing emerald ocean with green mountain on your right, then the white light house captured your eyes. You can also walk to the top (5-10min) to the top of the small rock hill to enjoy 360 view with sea... More

Gorgeous views from this spot. Was really hot but windy as well. I loved the steps to the lighthouse. Picture perfect. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I was astonished to find many tourists here. I visited this place on a rainy day and the sky can be very interesting. The weather is changing so fast and so is the atmosphere and the views. There are different viewpoints and there is even a path going down to the rocks near the ocean. If you stay on Ishigaki... More

We had a great time driving to this spot before the sunset. Views are nice and so is the drive. About 35 min to the airport. On your way, there is a small jersey dairy farm selling ice cream, worth stopping too.

We went to the lighthouse before going to the sunset beach, both with public transportation. The stop for the lighthouse is not an official one but thsy nicely stop for tourists - to go off and on -. After walking 1 km you reach the lighthouse. Enjoy the stunning view on the north not the island and the stunning colors... More

This place same as Ongazaki cape, but it's in northern side.! Nice place but very strong winds blowing here.! There's no restaurant here, only toilet and vending machines are available. So if you hungry, better you bring food.!! Hehehe

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.

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 got there, we were exhausted. Don't stop at the light house. Get up on the rock so you can get even a better... More

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