Okinawa 2 Day Itinerary: Ishigaki island Trip



Ishigaki Island is located on the western side of the main island of Okinawa. It is known as a resort area rich in nature with beautiful beaches and underwater coral reefs.

This time, we stayed at The Miyara Garden, a single building for rent.
I was able to relax and not have to worry about the people around me.
We drank and ate a lot at an izakaya where you can also enjoy Okinawan gourmet food.
Ishigaki Island, everyone should visit!

We will be staying at a one-building private resort hotel with a private pool in every building.
It’s sure to be fun for girls, lovers, and families ✨


The entire building is for rent.
There seems to be enough room for a family or group of people!


There’s a kitchen, so you can buy food from local stores and cook it.

Two bedrooms

There seem to be a variety of room types.

Cozy sofa


They had even prepared disinfectant and gargle. Thanks!

6:00pm Umimonogatari Ishigakijima Store(海物語 石垣島店)

At night, the restaurant is an izakaya where you can enjoy Okinawan cuisine.
You can also enjoy live Okinawa folk music.

Habu sake (Awamori-based alcohol made in Okinawa)

When you think of Okinawa, do you think of habu sake
I’d like to try it, but I couldn’t muster the courage.
If you go there, challenge yourself.

Orion Draft (550 yen)

Okinawa is known for its Orion beer!
It’s refreshing and easy to drink, so it’s easy to go on.
It tasted great because we moved a lot that day.

Ishigaki Island colander mozuku seaweed rich in minerals (770 yen)

The thickness is very different from the mozuku found in supermarkets.
The chewy texture and the gurgling sensation are irresistible.

Goyachanpuru (Stir-fried bitter gourd) (770 yen)

It tastes kind of nostalgic.
It tastes different from the bitter Goyachanpuru I make at home!
I guess it’s different when you eat it in the real place.

Two pieces of seared Ishigaki beef nigiri (680 yen)

It melted! Ishigaki beef is really delicious.

Seifuku mizuwari (495 yen)

I also drank some 30 degree Awamori. It was surprisingly easy to drink with water.
But be careful not to drink too much!

Live folk music

At Umimonogatari, you can listen to live folk music while enjoying your meal.

Yaeyama soba (small) (550 yen)

The final dish is Yaeyama soba (Okinawa soba eaten in the Yaeyama region).
I ate a lot, so I went with the small size, but I could have gone with the regular size.

Spot Outline

Umimonogatari Ishigakijima Store, located in Misaki-cho, Ishigaki City, Okinawa, is an Okinawan folk song tavern. At this restaurant, you can enjoy live Okinawa folk songs while enjoying delicious food.

THE MIYARA GARDEN(石垣島 ザ・ミヤラガーデン)

A slightly luxurious trip for one. Also recommended for group or family trips!
Please take a look at it for reference ✨
