For those who haven't quite had their fill, Ishigaki Island Limestone Cave and Cape Hirakubozaki are a couple more worth experiencing.
Be captivated by engaging displays and interesting objects and artefacts at the Awamori Museum. If luck's on your side, there might be a guided tour scheduled while you're there.
Step inside a world of science innovation and discovery at Tamatorizaki Observatory. Ask around about any scheduled tours or just let the artefacts themselves do the talking.

Explore the rich heritage of this region through the assortment of intriguing displays and artefacts at the Yaeyama Museum.
Ishigaki Yaima Village and Miyara Dunchi are a great place to start if you're after an immersive journey into Ishigaki Island's heritage. If you end up with spare time, the Nobumoto Ohama Memorial Hall is also worth investigating.
Observe the locals praying or take some time out for some soul-searching of your own at the Fusaki Kannon-do Temple or the Torin-ji Temple, two historic faith sites.
Designed to send out a light that has helped lead many ships through unknown waters, Kannonzaki Lighthouse is a solid, towering structure that you won't be able to miss.
