Too far away but it is just a light house.... The bay beside it is nice, and there isn't much to do except taking pictures.....

If you are going around in Ishigaki by car, there can be some geographical interest to reach the absolutely northern point. There is a lighthouse here and the sea is incredibly green all around. Nice picture spot. They were selling good icecreams at the cape when I was there.

A bit of a detour, but definitely worth it. The combination of beautiful landscape, wild rocky shore, the view and the quaint lighthouse makes this a unique spot! Try to visit during sunset.

My favourite view point on an island filled with lots of fantastic. Lots of other tourists about around sunset, which is when we visited,. All the usual conveniences (parking, toilets and vending machines) but I suspect less mobile visitors will struggle a bit.

We enjoyed our amble up to the lighthouse, hardly any traffic at all. At the top there are 2 parking areas, if there are cars in the first parking section on to the left just park there it prob means the top one is full as we found out, but its only a short walk. The views are fantastic, have... More

The drive up provided many nice views of the coast line and the final view did not disappoint in the least. (If you are a Geocacher, the cache located here is a nice bonus.)

Absolutely a beautiful place for watching sunset. Small place on a hill. Bit crowdy but definitely ok. Not beach! Nice lighthouse. There were some insects/muscitos. Bathroom and vending machine available.

Great view of the island and sea! Can be a little bit crowded with cars and difficult to park but the view it is worth a visit!
