Ok so I am a fan of Okinawa. I have been a few times now and I really enjoy the big island. However Ishigaki is one of those islands I cannot quite figure out whether I like or not. I know that that may sound weird or nasty but it is the truth. This last trip though I think will be my last one there. Of course it doesn’t help that we had a typhoon while there and had to fly back to Tokyo through that typhoon, thats enough to put me off for life lol!
There is one island close to Ishigaki though that I love and that is Taketomi. It is such a cute little island and I have been there twice now and enjoyed it both time.
