Step back in time at Ishigaki Yaima Mura, where 100-year-old traditional village houses of Yaeyama have been carefully restored. Designated as a tangible cultural heritage of Japan, this traditional architecture is an icon of the islands. Visitors can also enjoy folk music performances, visit a mangrove forest, and play with curious Squirrel Monkeys. Try your hand at local arts and crafts, such as shisa painting, or dress up in classy Ryukyu-style kimono. On-site is the Amparu cafeteria, serving up delicious Ishigaki cuisine, with fantastic views of Nagura Bay.
