I stayed here for two nights after visiting Iriomote Island. Gon-san and his family/staff were wonderful! His English was excellent and they even have a map of the local area in English. I rented a private room (even though just me) and it was HUGE, especially by Japanese standards. I also used his rental car (3,000 yen I think). It's old and a bit rusty, but worked well and has Navi (if you can read Japanese). His wife even programmed a restaurant in for me and I just followed the arrows and directions (easy even if you don't know Japanese). Location was great for local town, beach, hanging out. Recommend getting a rental car though if you want to see other parts of Ishigaki. Beautiful, beautiful island. Unfortunately a typhoon came and I couldn't SCUBA dive, but highly recommend that (Manta Scramble) if you are certified. Domo Arigato Gon-san and family!
