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 lighthouse at the edge of Ishigaki Island, quite a distance from the city center. There is nothing in particular except the lighthouse, but the scenery is good.

  • The change in the color of the sea by the coral seen from the tip of the island is a word of "Wonderful" anyway. There were not many parking lots, and depending on the time of day, there were times when i couldn't get in and went around the room. (There is also a second parking lot in the place where it got off a little.
