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. Put Banna Park into our Ishigaki trip itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Ishigaki.
