Nature / Park
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.

  • Got to see aerial view of Ishigaki island on the observatory deck. It's a huge park with different entrances so make sure you enter at the right one.  more »
  • Very beautiful butterflies, as expected, nice walk in the forest, very nice views. Playground for children is highly recommended. In short a nice place for a no bathing day!

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.
