Yaeyama palm grove

Yaeyama palm grove & Papaya shop

The place is close to Yonehara beach and easy to find thanks to the palmtree sign in the middle of the road. The palm trees are up to 20 meters high and are a national treasure. In June you can see fireflies (go just before it gets dark).

Parking: Free

Address: 491 Fukai, Ishigaki

Tel: 0980-82-3166

At the same place you will also find the 'Papaya' fresh juice shop. All the juices are made with 100% Ishigaki fruits (Mango, pineapple, red dragon fruit, island banana, guava). The fruits are mixed with local sugar cane juice squeezed at the shop.

Sugarcane juice: 300-400 yens

Fresh juice: 500 yens

There is as well a home made salt produced with Yonehara coast sea water, the best salt of Ishigaki island. When making the salt, minuscule parts of coral remain inside and it's not good for health. Hopefully they extract it to make the purest salt.

Open 7 days a week. 8:30 - 18:00
