  • It is ideal for families with children. Feeding a large number of free-range squirrel can be. Go in the morning hungry hungry I may (I was late, the engagement was). Please note to feed the children, and take away by force food into the body, suddenly deprived. (But it is also fun.

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.
