White light house on the cape of the northernmost tip of Ishigaki Island. The Hirakubo Peninsula has a terrain protruding long from the north eastern part of Ishigakijima. Truly amazing views!

Far beyond but possible to visit from center. Adventuresome to travel there but worthy enough. The view is great

The lighthouse is surrounded by a beautiful sea, absolutely breathtaking. Like this much more than the other lighthouse(Sakieda), it was worth the long drive up north. It is about 20 mins drive from sunset beach. Limited parking space.

270 degree of ocean and shore view at the northern point of Ishigaki island, the place you must visit

Another outstanding place to visit while in Ishigaki Island. The cape features a lighthouse which is not visible from the street. You have to walk down to access it. Spectacular views abound from this site. Another “must see” from a visitor’s perspective.

Stunning views at the cape and it wasn't crowded when I was there - only four or five others. Be careful on the rocky paths.

This windy cape is a very beautiful place, and the drive is also pretty and almost traffic-free There aren't many restaurants nearby, though, at least in the off season, so you'd be well-advised to pack a picnic lunch. There are some lovely, empty beaches nearby...More
