Ishigaki Tour Ideas
6 or 7 hours
Escape to the remote Iriomote and Yubu islands, both near Okinawa. A river cruise on Iriomote Island takes you past the mangrove-lined banks of the Nakama River while a buffalo cart transports you across shallow water to Yubu Island, where you'll earn about local plant life at the botanical garden. You can upgrade your experience to include an enchanting ride aboard a boat equipped with a glass-enclosed bottom level. Lunch and round-trip transport by ferry from Ishigaki are included.
7 or 8 hours
Visit three Okinawa islands in one day — Iriomote, Yubu and Kohama — with the option of upgrading your tour to include Taketomi Island. Embark on a river cruise through the mangrove forests of Iriomote, take a water buffalo cart ride on Yubu as you're regaled with Okinawan folk music and tour the sights of Kohama by bus. If you choose to ride the ferry to Taketomi, you'll pass traditional buildings with red tile roofs and make a stop at Star Sand Beach before returning to Ishigaki.
