  • On a clear sunny day this is gorgeous. This was our first stop on the Island and really set the scene.  more »
  • From the observatory, which is really just a covered platform, you can see the Pacific Ocean as well as the East China Sea. This area reminds me very much of Hawaii with its green foliage, hibiscus.....  more »
  • Though not the best view point in Ishigaki, it still offers spectacular view of the ocean and the coastline.
  • It’s very beautiful at night. I enjoyed looking at the stars.
  • Nice view from this observation deck!
  • Pretty but bring mosquito repellent during warmer months
  • We visit it for sunrise and with no regret the scene is remarkable especially only we were there.
