I finally got the very much needed “getting around” (transportation) page up!
You can find useful links and advice on how to get around the island (HINT a rental car makes it super easy!) Of course, there are many other options to get around the islands as well.
I really recommend anyone visiting Ishigaki to sign up for at least one tour, be it diving, kayaking or a mangrove walk. A tour will get you outside the main areas and show off the amazing unique nature of the Yaeyama islands. Several companies offer tours in English so I’m sure you can find something you like ^_^
It is also possible to get around the island by bus, but be aware that they make many stops and most lines only have a few departures a day. A bus pass will save you a lot of money if you plan on staying for a few days, or even just make a trip to Kabira and back.

Thanks for stopping by ^_^
