At the west of the village, this private museum houses a diverse collection of folk artefacts.
This facility is built around the world's largest aquarium tank, which houses a fantastic variety of marine life, including whale sharks. Unfortunately, the aquarium is on the checklist of every single tourist to the island, and it can be packed. From Nago, buses 65, 66 and 70 run directly to the park (¥860, 50 minutes).
On the north coast of Ishigaki along Rte 79, Yonehara Beach is a nice sand beach with a good bit of reef offshore. You can rent snorkel gear (¥1000) at any of the shops along the main road, where you'll also find plentiful cafes.
