Ishigaki

Ishigaki ©
Ishigaki, the most populous island in the chain, features the country's southernmost city and acts as a transport hub for exploring the landmasses that surround.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Prime Scuba Ishigaki Diving Center - Day Tour and Cape Hirakubozaki. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Yonehara Beach, take in the waterfront at Nishi Pier, stroll around Kabira Park, and take in panoramic vistas at Tamatorizaki Observatory.

To see ratings, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Ishigaki journey planning website.

Manchester, UK to Ishigaki is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Manchester to Ishigaki. Traveling from Manchester in October, things will get much hotter in Ishigaki: highs are around 34°C and lows about 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) so you can travel to Miyakojima.
