Cape Hirakubozaki, Ishigaki

4.5
#1 of 18 in Historic Sites in Ishigaki
Situated on a vast pastureland where farm life blossoms, Cape Hirakubozaki offers plenty of space for relaxed exploration. Roam the surrounding hills where you can sit down, take a break, and have a picnic. If you arrive at the cape via car (preferably with four-wheel drive), take the dirt roads to uncover pristine parts of nature where people rarely venture. Thanks to the abundant tame animal life here, you can observe and interact with passing horses and cows, or go fishing in the bountiful sea. The area usually gets very busy during the day, so expect scarce free parking spaces. If here at the end of the day, head to the solitary white lighthouse at the tip for expansive views of the setting sun. Our Ishigaki trip itinerary planner makes visiting Cape Hirakubozaki and other Ishigaki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A tour of ishigaki's tourist spots. It's out of season and the sea is cold, so we drove. The stone wall is mainly used as a relay place of the remote island, but the stone wall itself is not a place to see unexpectedly, and I went to this lighthouse. Well, it's an ordinary lighthouse that can't be mentioned, but I think it's a good idea to visit with your kids for a walk.

  • By saying the lighthouse at the northernmost point of Ishigaki Island, it is difficult to access without a car, but it was not so crowded and I was able to go sightseeing calmly. The weather was not so good on this day, but the sea was still clear blue and the wonderful scenery was worshipped. Please note that the wind is slightly strong.
