  • Nice walking tour of about 9km on a plain hard path. You can also go into the forest if you wish. Numerous butterflies. Slightly hilly. You can also drive up by car, but as a walker the cars do not disturb.

  • It's not so much a park as a mountain. I was surprised to see such a jungle spread ingress so close to the city. It is a proof that Ishigaki Island is a treasure trove of nature. At night, the night view and starry sky looked beautiful.

  • Went on a night walking tour and seen many cool animals. The roads were covered in toads frogs and gekkos. Seen several owls in the trees and a red kingfisher. Took a detour on a forest trail and seen a habu hebi on the stairs, the highlight of the tour for me.
  • A big place, and good view of the city
