  • Overlooking the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Hibiscus blossoms on the way to the Observatory, with an attractive shape around the mountain, is a natural sense of wealth. I was in Ishigaki Island, but this is most like. And relief of mountains, sea and sense of unity than anything else, will be healed.
