  • I go to Ishigaki Island almost every year, but It's been a long time since Kannonzaki Lighthouse is only occasionally used. There is also a Tangjin tomb and a product center stone wall nearby, so you can enjoy a walk.

  • It was close to the lighthouse from the parking lot, and from the high ground, we were able to see the beautiful sea of emerald green. There were ice stalls around the parking lot, and although it was a quiet place around, there were many tourists who came to take pictures.

  • Beautiful view, you can go down to the beach and get your feet (or whole self) wet.
  • Nice view. A bit lack of maintenance.
