How to Get There

The island is accessible by plane and ferry.

Yonaguni Island is the most remote of all the inhabited Okinawan islands, and there are only one or two flights a day from Ishigaki Island and three flights a week from Naha .

There is also a ferry that runs two trips a week, with return journeys on different days, but it takes four hours and it can be a rough journey.

To get around Yonaguni Island , you will need to rent a car or bicycle or hail a taxi. There are a few infrequent buses.

Rokujo Beach

Rokujo Beach is on the northeast coast of the island. Do not miss the sprawling cemetery near the coast as you approach the beach.

Rokujo literally means six mats, and when you see the beach, you will know how it got its name. At high tide, the beach is only little bigger than the size of six tatami mats, the standard size of a city apartment room in Tokyo.

Stunning views from the cliff

The view from the cliff is breathtaking, and it only gets better as you descend to the beach. It is a tricky climb down the cliff, so be sure to wear appropriate clothing.

The transparent waters reveal a wonderful expanse of coral with a fabulous array of sea life close to the shore.

Snorkeling and diving

Rokujo Beach is a great place for snorkeling in the shallows, and there is a dive shop at the beach where you can rent equipment. The deeper waters are only for experienced divers since the currents can be treacherous.
