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.

  • Banna Park can see a large number of fire insects, but also to see the beauty of Ishigaki Island, there is a very suitable for the children to play the game, is a very fun and very big place, but no wider car is not very convenient

  • Banna peak Ishigaki Island area of North Central Forest Park is. Because there is a difference between the high and low in the extensive grounds are accessible by car we recommend is. Observatory has several locations and have different views. The weather is often Ustav Iriomote, Taketomi Island, Yaeyama Islands.

  • 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.
