Its a must go to spot in Ishigaki. The observation deck gives you a complete view of the island. It is so plesant and filled with varied plants. Its a soothing experience from Tamatorizaki.
Beautiful location, which is a really nice beach to walk if you should have the time to do so. Note, this is not actually the site of an "Observatory", as we were informed, but rather it is more of an elevated observation point, with no Telescope structure. We got lucky and could see for miles. There are bathrooms and also drink vending machines onsite.
