Ishigaki Tour Ideas
Take a round-trip ferry from Ishigaki to Taketomi and experience the island's traditional Okinawan culture at your own pace. After a water buffalo cart ride through sandy streets, you can do one of the following independent activities: spend a relaxing day overlooking turquoise waters at Kondoi Beach, or explore the island's handicraft shops and local eateries by bicycle. Ferries depart and return throughout the day, so you can choose how long you spend on the island.
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.
