  • Its a must go to spot in Ishigaki. The observation deck gives you a complete view of the island. It is so plesant and filled with varied plants. Its a soothing experience from Tamatorizaki.
  • 360 amazing views! Beautiful views of the water and the volcano. There are mini paths to see different areas of the gardens on site. Thr bottom path has a variety of flowers. The welcome sign is in Japanese and English. Has plenty of parking on site. Bathrooms and vending machines. There is a cafe across the street. There is a van selling artistic flip flops and blue seal treats.
