Sakishima Trip – Day 5: New Year Day

01 Jan Sakishima Trip – Day 5: New Year Day

2014 started with horns from docked ships, firecrackers in the park, and people shouting “Happy New Year” in the town of Ishigaki.

IMGP0080I later found a good spot near the town where I may enjoy ultra light fly fishing. Maybe next time when I come back with my wife and kids.

IMGP0083And then the final departure back to Tokyo. Kind islanders down to the runway staff showed the good sense of hospitality. What a wonderful place. Sakishima Archipelago is definitely one place we should keep going back to.
