Cape Hirakubozaki, Ishigaki

4.4
#1 of 50 in Outdoors in Ishigaki
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. Our Ishigaki trip itinerary planner makes visiting Cape Hirakubozaki and other Ishigaki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • White light house on the cape of the northernmost tip of Ishigaki Island. The Hirakubo Peninsula has a terrain protruding long from the north eastern part of Ishigakijima. Truly amazing views!  more »
  • Far beyond but possible to visit from center. Adventuresome to travel there but worthy enough. The view is great  more »
  • At a distance of less than one hour drive from Ishigaki City. Parking is barely in the lighthouse and a toilet. Women may feel the resistance of the toilet. Because the views are unobstructed is nothing great. But I put so strong-wind may chill a bit depending on the season, so there is hope.

  • I came to the northernmost point of Ishigaki Island. Scenery is beautiful. Parking lot is small.
