Okinawa is Japan’s southernmost prefecture, which consists of a chain of islands stretching halfway between Japan and Taiwan for over 1,000 km. During its long history, Okinawa has been both an independent country and a territorial land under the Chinese and U.S. rule, giving it a colourful culture that can be found nowhere else in Japan. The main island of Okinawa, Okinawa-Honto, is very much developed towards domestic tourism, whereas the smaller islands to the west are less frequented by visitors, making it the perfect getaway for an unexpected beach break in Japan.

The destination today is one of these western islands, ISHIGAKI ISLAND. Part of the chain of Yaeyama Islands, Ishigaki is famous for its clear waters, undiscovered beaches, forested interior, and charming local character. Upon arrival, our local guide and driver will be awaiting to transfer you directly to the chosen accommodation. Spend the rest of the day at own leisure.

Overnight in Ishigaki Island.

Follow your guide on this first day in Ishigaki Island, soaking up the local culture and experiencing what the Okinawan vibe is all about. Ishigaki City is the commercial center of the island and can easily be explored on foot.

Wander through the local shopping streets and try some of the local specialties, such as Yaeyama soba (the Ishigaki variety of the popular noodles dish) or Ishigaki beef, known to be very tender and on level to compete with the famous Kobe beef. In the afternoon, it is your free time to explore the beautiful beaches on the west of the island.

Taketomi Island, only 10 minutes by boat (at own expense), has a population of just 300 and boasts a perfectly preserved Ryukyu Village. Slightly further away, Iriomote Island is one of Japan’s last true wildernesses, with great hiking in the national park.
