  • Have visited without expecting the beautifully maintained throughout and the staff. The cultural life of the old people of the Ishigaki Island and historic buildings, you can study. Squirrel monkey garden had lots of cute squirrel monkeys and feed (200 yen) have been there. You can also see stone song and dance shows in the Park. Thanks for add staff, was also the crowd all excited! I thought not only swim in the sea and this stone island tourism.
