The staff in the clean and tidy port building were very helpful. The boats and buses were spot on. The boats have free shuttle buses to tuned with their services to drop off and collect customers across the island.

I drove through twice and the least favorite of the villages. I was unable to tell if the shops were open and also few had signs in English. However I did note more restaurants and at least one bar in town.

This small town is nothing special but has a ferry terminal, some car rentals a few supermarkets and restaurants. I used the ferry to go to Hatoma island. This very remote island is perfect for those who want to spend a day wandering around by yourself. Other ferries go from and to Ishigaki.

Small town of ferry terminal, car rentals, few supermarkets and restaurants. Nothing special, but a good starting point to explore the island. There is a scheduled inexpensive bus going along the coast and passing the town.

As I heard in advance, my booked ferry from Ishigaki island to Uehara port was cancelled in December. If you are told that the ferries to Uehara port are cancelled but you still need to go to Uehara to be picked up by hotels or rent-a-car companies, you can buy tickets to Uehara in Ishigaki island, take the ferries to...
