  • Mount Yarabu, a scenic spot on Ishigaki Island 15 minutes of climbing with the best view Best cost performance However, a shortcut to climb from the 8th station There are two routes to climb from the foot of the mountain, and it takes about an hour from the foot of the mountain. It is very difficult to find the trailhead, so you need to run slowly to find it. It's dangerous to wear short sleeves and shorts because there is a possibility that habu and snakes will appear.
  • As a self-powered activity, I listed two places, here and Mahpae. This is because I thought that I could enjoy a sense of accomplishment and a superb view in a short time. *access* A car is essential because it runs on mountain roads. The roadside feels narrow because twigs and leaves are falling and branches are hanging down. There are places where it is difficult for some cars to pass each other. So it's dangerous if you don't slow down considerably, especially near curves. *entrance* I used everyone's writing as a reference and prepared for it, but I missed it once. First of all, if you drive a little on a mountain road and turn left, you will see the mirror part of the curved mirror disappearing, which is a nearby sign. Pay attention to the guardrail on the right hand side ahead. There is an entrance and a guardrail written in black, so walk from the side. The car was parked in a small space on the opposite side of the guardrail. No private parking lot!? *On the way to the Troll's Tongue* I can't go with sandals or flip-flops, but I think it's tough. I changed from gyosan to sneakers. I would say that you should also use insect repellent. At first it is dirt, but there are places where rocks rise along the way. It is safer to use it because the rope is stretched It gets muddy when it rains. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaa soaring, I got there physically in about 10 minutes.
