Cape Hirakubozaki, Ishigaki

4.5
Must see · Lighthouse · Outdoor Activity
Situated on a vast pastureland where farm life blossoms, Cape Hirakubozaki offers plenty of space for relaxed exploration. Roam the surrounding hills where you can sit down, take a break, and have a picnic. If you arrive at the cape via car (preferably with four-wheel drive), take the dirt roads to uncover pristine parts of nature where people rarely venture. Thanks to the abundant tame animal life here, you can observe and interact with passing horses and cows, or go fishing in the bountiful sea. The area usually gets very busy during the day, so expect scarce free parking spaces. If here at the end of the day, head to the solitary white lighthouse at the tip for expansive views of the setting sun.
