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 three flights a day from Painushima Ishigaki Airport and one flight a day from Naha Airport.

There is also a ferry that runs two trips a week, with return journeys on different days, but it takes around four hours and 30 minutes 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 buses, too.

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 a little bigger than the size of six tatami mats (approximately 10 square meters).

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.
