Yonaguni-cho

(3.4/5 based on 750+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, museums, nature
The tiny remote island of Yonaguni-cho has been attracting visitors since the 1980s, when local divers discovered its main attraction: a mysterious, supposedly man-made, underwater monolith. Since then, diving enthusiasts have been flocking to the island, hoping to explore the ruins and catch a glimpse of the local hammerhead sharks. Besides diving, attractions on Yonaguni-cho include its pristine beaches, scenic capes, caverns, and interesting rock formations. On a trip to Yonaguni-cho, don't forget to sample its famous flower sake, a distilled 120-proof rice beverage.

Where to stay

Modern, western-style accommodations remain scarce in Yonaguni-cho, but you can find a number of traditional options for your stay on the island. Aside from a dorm-style budget hostel and a high-end resort, lodgings mostly consist of cozy "minshuku," or Japanese family-run bed and breakfasts. A couple of ryokans offering tatami floors with futons round out the selection.
