Experiences

Ishigaki Island

Gorgeous palm tree beaches lie around the island with the temperature rarely dipping below 20 degrees Celsius throughout the year. The crystal clear waters of Shiraho and the coral reef at Kabira Bay play host to a spectacular array of colourful marine life including the stunning manta ray which makes regular visits to Ishigaki. The island has some great walking and bird watching opportunities whether it be around Mount Omoto-Dake or in the inland jungle.

Taketomi Island

Little Taketomi island is located just of Ishigaki and is famous for its pristine beaches and traditional Okinawa style buildings. Transport on the island is by rental bike or water buffalo taxi! Don’t forget to look out for the star-shaped sand as you stroll along the shoreline.

Iriomote Island

Iriomote-Jima, Japan’s great sub-tropical wilderness, is covered in dense jungle, swampy mangroves, and stretches of untouched coastline, and with no landing strip, can only be reached by boat. If you are lucky you may spot the Iriomote wildcat, only 100 of which are believed to still be in existence in the thickly covered hills of unchartered virgin forest.

The Hoshinoya Experience (extra)

Upgrade to the Hoshinoya 5* Hotel to stay in your own villa just off the white sand beaches of Taketomi.

A Different Kind of Taxi!

Take the water buffalo taxis to get around the island.
