Hike along the wooded trails at Banna Park, a picturesque park filled with activities for all ages. The lush vegetation here includes over 2,500 tropical plant species, crisscrossed by numerous trails and small wooden bridges. Look for the section dedicated to butterflies and exotic flowers (accompanied by information boards), and then take the kids to an adventure playground, full of wild imaginative climbing structures, massive slides, and rope swings. Trek to the southernmost point of the park for extensive views of Ishigaki City and Taketomi Island.

  • This should be the largest park in Ishigaki Island, and I think it's not enough to spend a whole day here. It is more convenient to drive, but the road is narrower, be careful. The Observatory, the children's playground, the Museum of insects, etc.

  • Went on a night walking tour and seen many cool animals. The roads were cover3d in toads frogs and gekkos. Seen several owls in the trees and a red kingfisher. Took a detor on a forest trail and seen a habu hebi on the stairs, the highlight of the tour for me.
  • We had a lot of fun in this park. Slides are amazing. A lot of good picnic areas. Would love to stay longer.
  • South Gate is accessible with 2 buses in each direction daily or about 45 min walk from the city. Possible to walk through the park, but bring comfortable shoes and lots of water to drink if you attempt that. Think biking is the best way to see and access the park.
  • Nice placed, it is free for let all people enjoying those better environment, especially the place of children area, it a greater design.
  • You will see that the earth is round.
