  • I visited the Observatory located in Banna, the Emerald sea and the observation deck of the South Island. Banna skyline run in the Park was in a lot of slope, curved roads thrill. Harmony of Ishigaki Island, seen from the observation deck of the two plain and the sea was very beautiful. Personally, like people on the observation deck of the South Island. It is felt that matches the landscape observatory were built of natural rock.

  • Went to the Observatory, at the Banna Park is better. Before going to the Observatory, on the other hand same way must not exit the embarking place for home coming back to the park entrance.

  • It is a spectacular spot overlooking the Ishigaki Island. Park is clean, and drive a great place, but routes are North-South routes are recommended.

Where to stay in Ishigaki

The greatest abundance of accommodations on Ishigaki sit in the city of the same name. Lining the island's south coast, a number of high-rise hotels and resort-style options provide standard to luxury rooms and additional facilities, including restaurants, spas, and pools. Budget-conscious travelers will want to check out the "minshukus" (hostels with private and dormitory-style rooms), generally located in the city, but on streets further back from the sea. The northern coast of the island has its fair share of accommodations too, following the same rules as the south, but without the same breadth of choice.
