Ishigaki Tour Ideas
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.
Explore remote Iriomote Island on this leisurely paced full-day active tour. The jungle-clad island teems with incredible wildlife, and this kayaking and hiking adventure is the eco-friendly way to see it. After a ferry from Ishigaki, paddle along Nishida River until you reach a hiking trail that leads to Sangara Falls for a swim and bento box lunch. On this tour, limited to 10 people, you'll learn about the efforts to keep this unspoiled part of Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park healthy and thriving.
