Kabira Bay –
Ishigaki Island, Japan

After getting an email from Peach Airlines with some amazing deals i decided to book a little weekend getaway to Ishigaki for our anniversary. Ishigaki is located in the Yaeyama Islands, a little chain of islands south of Okinawa. I was aware that i booked our trip in the middle of rainy season and we were ready for any type of weather, but thankfully after a horrific plane ride, we were blessed with blue skies. We arrived a little later than planned so Friday evening was spent eating and trying to get over the nerves from the flight. On Saturday morning we decided to rent a car and explore some of the many attractions in Ishigaki. Our first stop, Kabira Bay. This place looks amazing in pictures but man, it’s breathtaking in person.


^^ i think it’s safe to say we’ve mastered the art of japanese posing ^^


^^ tourists and more tourists ^^


^^ this frozen drink came from heaven! haha at least that’s what it felt like ^^


^^ it’s always fun not knowing what you’re ordering ^^


^^ homemade pizza with corn and spam, it cannot get more japanese-y! it was delicious! ^^

    We are at that little cafe too! I liked the little boutique connected to it 🙂 These pictures are gorgeous btw!

  • You were lucky with the weather! When I went it was raining, but still beautiful of course! The other day I was looking through my photos from Japan and there are too many of me doing the peace sign!

  • Thanks! I didn't make it inside the boutique but i loved this little cafe!

  • Yup we sure were! Especially because we went during rainy season. We were ready for crappy weather but we were blessed with clear skies! and haha we always end up with too many peace sign pictures 😛
