Did you know that Okinawa’s highest mountain is located in Ishigaki? It even has a small waterfall on the way to the top!
I would say that this is a really worthwhile adventure if you want to get off the beaten track, especially during the winter months and in the spring. But it can also be fun on a hot summers day, just plan ahead so that you have enough time and water to make it an enjoyable hike!
Go to the new page to see more pictures from the hike and find out how to get there and up to the top! It is a really pretty jungle trail and there are some gems that are left out intentionally on the page, such as the small shrine and wooden walk bridge. When I make pages like this, I think that it’s important to save some parts for fellow travelers to discover by themselves instead of serving up all the best-off pictures. Would you agree?
For those of you that are too far from Ishigaki or can’t wait, I’ll be posting more pictures on my Instagram @visitishigaki
