This is a must, the view is amazing on a nice day. On the way there or back, one must stop at the soba shop that is highly rated here in Ishigaki! Highly recommend this lighthouse visit!

A very best view from one of the top area to see Ishigaki. It will take around 30 - 45 mins drive from the city.

Very nice view with the sea in unbelievable different grade of green colors. It looks as if there are great treasures within.

Great views. The sunset is especially good from here. You can climb a hill by the lighthouse. There is also a toilet and some vending machines. Not that many people since it`s so far away from the main area! About 40mins by car.

The Cape is about 30 mins drive from the city centre of ishigaki. When I was there, I just feel a deep level of regret! The scene was really attractive, and I found there was a young guy playing a drone there. I can imagine...More
