[nectar_dropcap]F[/nectar_dropcap]ebruary is here and I finally finished re-making the homepage. How do you like it?
It took me a lot longer than I thought, which shouldn’t really be a surprise since I’ve been doing the job of a web designer, graphic designer, photographer, and content writer all by myself. And it has been so much fun!
I confess that it probably took a bit of extra time because I played around with the settings. But have you noticed that when you’re waiting for a page to load the swirling circle now has the color of the emerald blue ocean? I just LOVE to make small details like that! Not having any experience or the know of how to do things is no excuse for not trying to do them properly I say ^_^ However, I do hope that someday I can get a theme to work with and bring everything to the next level.

Of course, when I said that I finished re-making the site I didn’t mean that there’s nothing left to do. There is SO MUCH left to do! But for now, at least I squeezed all the old content into a new and more user-friendly format. This month I will continue to iron out the kinks still left. Please, let me know if anything isn’t working or if you have a suggestion for the site.
I’ll also update some of the old content. The event page is going to get a total makeover so that it will be easier to find out when festivals and other events are happening. Until I get that sorted, you can follow Visit Ishigaki on Facebook to see what events are coming up.

New pages and guides will start popping up in March, I wanted to start making new ones this month but re-making the site has taken so much more time than I thought. I’m also going back to Sweden a few weeks at the end of this month so… let’s face it, it’s not going to happen.

Do you have any request for a guide or other information helpful for traveling in Ishigaki? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by!

    How is the weather there at the end February? i’m thinking of visiting but heard the water is kinda chilly and it rains quite a bit too.

      Hi James, what you heard is true. Right now we have gorgeous sunny weather, but that could quickly change in a couple of days. Water temperature is the coldest around this time of the year. You can check the climate page (under “good to know”) for more details about weather, I just updated the page to make it more comprehensive.
      Hope that helps!
