Ishigaki, the most populous island in the chain, features the country's southernmost city and acts as a transport hub for exploring the landmasses that surround.
Take a break from the city and head to Kaiji Beach and Kondoi Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Island Countryside Settlement and Rhizophoraceae Plant Community of Fukidogawa River. And it doesn't end there: take a leisurely stroll along Nishi Pier, enjoy breathtaking views from Tamatorizaki Observatory, stroll around Banna Park, and go for a walk through Cape Ongazaki.
