  • Compared to go down, if it is not enough time and can only get one station, build a flat long-term protection station. The only good thing about this is that it's closer to the city and easy to get to.

  • Though not the best view point in Ishigaki, it still offers spectacular view of the ocean and the coastline.
  • It’s very beautiful at night. I enjoyed looking at the stars.
