Another outstanding place to visit while in Ishigaki Island. The cape features a lighthouse which is not visible from the street. You have to walk down to access it. Spectacular views abound from this site. Another “must see” from a visitor’s perspective.

Stunning views at the cape and it wasn't crowded when I was there - only four or five others. Be careful on the rocky paths.

This place is very very windy! But it's worth going there to see this beautiful view of nature. Be sure you wear proper shoes otherwise you might get blown off.

Not much more to add to what others have already said. I was simply stunned at how beautiful the view was looking out towards the ocean from the lighthouse. It's about a 50 minute drive from the city center but I would still go even...More

This is a must, the view is amazing on a nice day. On the way there or back, one must stop at the soba shop that is highly rated here in Ishigaki! Highly recommend this lighthouse visit!
