Introducing Ishigaki Island

After a day in a Cruise, we finally arrived in Ishigaki Island. As I've mentioned, the weather wasn't cooperating that day. Actually, there's typhoon. We supposed to see the Ishigaki City from here...
 or... Iriomote Island

or ... Kohama Island

or ... Taketomi Island
or ... Aragusuku Island, and Hatoma Island in a clear day :(

Our next stop :
Ishigaki Yaima Mura, a known village featuring a number of 80 -100 traditional house like one below.

We're so lucky enough to view the Kabira Bay known as the most beautiful spot in Ishigai Island.

This bay is also famous in cultivating black pearls as shown the black spots above.
