The best sight is the monkeyssss! They are so cute and play around with you. Good for family and kids! However that is the only worthy things. You just need to spend 2 hours, more than enough!

Thank you for your question. Since taxi is waiting in the cruise port, you can use. And until Ishigaki Yaima village is about 20 minutes by car. Have a good trip.
