The owner was really nice, we asked for advice and she went out of her way to help us! We are so grateful for her help which made our vacations in the islands so much better!!! Her breakfast is really good (japanese breakfast) They also have dogs outside that are very friendly!
The owner has 4 dogs which delighted my son. He was also very kind with my son who followed him for walks with dogs and helped him with a bit of housework. He rewarded my son with a snack and that him very happy :D
Shiraho is a very quiet but interesting neighborhood. The villagers put in a lot of effort to preserve their traditions and the natural environment. The coral reef at Shiraho is very worth seeing if you can snorkel. The guesthouse owners were super helpful in providing me with information of the neighborhood and booking the local snorkelling tour. Sachi-san cooked yummy breakfast and dinner every day. The WWF conservation centre in the village has a very good exhibition about local fishermen's livelihood and the corals. You can borrow a village guide map from the guesthouse for a heritage walk around. The beach is just a stone throw away. There were even fireflies! Bus stop is near. Make good use of the bus pass and you can get to the main attractions on Ishigaki.
Convenient! Lovely breakfast and helpful host. They are caring and give us the chinese map when I am reading the Japanese map that I cannot understand.
After staying in central Ishigaki, I ended my trip with a stay at Minshuku Irayoi. The single room was pleasantly large, and the Japanese-style bed was very comfortable. The house has a homey vibe to it, especially with the dogs outside :) I enjoyed spending the mornings walking along the rocky beach nearby. I didn't have a chance to chat much with the hosts but they were very helpful and offered to post a letter for me as the post office was closed on my last day. Their English was great too, so no barriers there. I would 100% recommend the breakfast at least once during your stay! I'm sad I didn't get to try the dinner. The location is very easy to find from Shiro bus stop, and the airport bus runs fairly frequently which makes getting into town easy. If you're driving, even better. It was nice to be so close to the airport when I was leaving.
Located 7 minutes by car from Ishigaki airport and 30 seconds on foot from coral sea beach, this is an accommodation that is like a concierge in Shiraho area of Ishigaki island.
