Cape Hirakubozaki, Ishigaki
(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our world travel planner, Ishigaki attractions like Cape Hirakubozaki can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • There was 5/2016 staying in the hirakubo, so somehow I stopped by, but did not expect, and was impressed by the superb view of the surrounding scenery. We recommend different gradient of the sea and the sky is cloudy and sunny, so the weather is good. Parking lot becomes full in 6 units, toilets and vending machines.

  • If the drive I want to see the views. But no pizazz and drama scene scenery is breathtaking. Lighthouse were exposed to images and the resorts of the South, windy, tough environment is recommended as a photo spot.

  • Heard of Ishigaki Island, where is a good idea, to recommend to the first spot. It is many times. Also have the best views. Note that wind is strong (^ ω ^)
