Sunset and star gazing tour by night, kayak trip

This nighttime kayaking trip takes place on the Miyara river, in the south east of Ishigaki. The river is the longest on Ishigaki, and passes through dense mangrove forests, which remain unspoiled and filled with wildlife and a variety of plants.

You will be picked up from your hotel (or Ishigaki Port) and taken to the kayaking center on the Miyara River where you will be given full instructions on kayaking. We then take a gentle glide along the river, admiring the forest and also the sun setting. As the skies darken, your guide will point out the various stars and constellations in view.

The start time for the tour, which takes about 2 hours, varies according to the time for sunset. Having completed our trip, you will have time to change before being returned to your hotel or pick up point.

It is recommended you bring a towel, a change of clothing and wear appropriate footwear.
