Cape Hirakubozaki, Ishigaki

4.4
#1 of 41 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.

  • This place is very very windy! But it's worth going there to see this beautiful view of nature. Be sure you wear proper shoes otherwise you might get blown off.  more »
  • Ishigaki Island's reputation as the most spectacular (^-^) is the color of the sea though. Very not so far away in the car at all, but the wind was strong typhoon is coming happy photo hair bow bow (^ ▽ ^;)

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.
