  • It is an old-fashioned glass boat, and it sells it! Introduction of the old-fashioned house of Ishigaki. In the place of sugar making, it sells it. Because it was fresh, it was amazing and delicious. The monkey here is so smart that he can open the chuck of her bag! With the food of the capsule, about ten animals come from the arm from the head. It was a little scary but I enjoyed it.

  • The drive is recommended. The scenery on the way is also wonderful. The ancient appearance of Ishigaki Island is seen, and it is a facility of a very good atmosphere. There is a squirrel monkey, and it rides on the arm and the back. Very pretty
