A city jurisdiction formed after the merger of several towns in 2005, Miyakojima spans six linked-up islands.
On the 28th (Sun), get outside with Sunayama Beach, then snap pictures at Irabu Ohashi, then take in the views from Kurima Bridge, and finally head outdoors with Yonaha Maehama Beach. On the 29th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour and then kick back and relax at Aragusuku Beach.

To find photos, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, read Miyakojima sightseeing planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Miyakojima is an approximately 12-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Miyakojima. While traveling from Kuala Lumpur, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Miyakojima, ranging from highs of 33°C to lows of 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel to Ishigaki.
