The Ishigaki Island is the gateway to the Yaeyama Islands since ferries to each island leave from Ishigaki Island. There are plenty of restaurants,souvenir shops, and also hotels which is wide range from affordable inns to luxury resort. Ishigaki Island is large enough to drive around in about 3 hours, so you can drive for half a day, but if you want to drive while stopping by, we recommend a one-day drive.
A small island that arrives from Ishigaki Island in just 10 minutes by boat. You can enjoy the nostalgic landscape of Okinawa. The area is about 5.4km2 and the circumference is 9.2km, so it is large enough to ride a bicycle. You can take a leisurely tour of the island on a cow rider, take a leisurely stroll, and enjoy the old-fashioned town with its red tiled roof, stone walls, and white sand roads.
This small island has a wide range of sugar cane fields, a lot of tropical nature such as the beautiful sea and mangroves, and is an island where a famous TV drama was shot. It is located in the center of the Yaeyama Islands between Ishigaki Island and Iriomote Island, and can be reached from Ishigaki Island in about 25 minutes by high-speed boat.
This island is a peaceful island with no traffic lights or police boxes, and the number of cows is more than 10 times that of the population.
You can cycle around in about an hour since it's a flat island with almost no slopes. Beautiful sea, such as "Iko Pier" where you can feel like standing on the sea, "Nishihama" which is a beautiful natural beach shining in emerald green, and "Okimoto Coast" where you can see beautiful coral reefs and tropical fish with outstanding transparency, is very attractive.
Hateruma Island is the southernmost island in Japan. There are no buses or traffic lights on the island, and you can spend a relaxing time with sugar cane fields, nature-filled beaches and old-fashioned houses. It is also called "Star Island" because you can see the perfect stars, and you can observe the Southern Cross, which you cannot see in Honshu. The sea, which boasts outstanding beauty in the Yaeyama Islands, has a unique blue color called "Hateruma Blue". You may encounter sea turtles as well as many corals and fish in the sea.

It has its own nature, culture and history, such as the cliff coast, mysterious undersea ruins, and the vast ranch where Yonaguni horses are grazing, unlike the other islands of Yaeyama.
It takes about 30 minutes by plane from Ishigaki Island, and a ferry also operates which take 4 hours, but please note that it may be canceled depending on the weather.
Yaeyama soba (noodle) is one of the standard dishes of Yaeyama. It’s traditionally served with pork, green onions, and fish cake. The broth is made from skipjack tuna, pork bone broth and Konbu (seaweed). The taste is quite mild but you can spice it up local style by sprinkling on some island pepper and adding Awamori-Chili condiment.
Originally, in Ishigaki and Yaeyama Islands, Japanese Black beef is popular and has become the root of branded beef nationwide. Ishigaki beef has been highly evaluated as a main dish at the summit banquet of the Okinawa Summit held in 2000. I would like you to taste it with steak or grilled meat because it is a great deal, but if you use Ishigaki beef bowl, you can taste Ishigaki beef at a reasonable price.
