Ishigaki island is less affected by city lights. It is an island with a shining starry sky that cannot be seen in the city. In March 2018 Ishigaki island was certified as Japan's first Starry Sky Reserve (International Dark Sky Association). Why don't you heal your heart with the Sanshin unique to Okinawa while looking at such a beautiful starry sky? You can enjoy starry sky guidance and live sanshin performances by a certified starry sky guide. This starry sky tour is recommended for those who want to enjoy the starry sky slowly with their families, couples, and friends. We also take pictures with the starry sky in the background, so please use it as a memory of your trip ☆

While lying down on the reclining seat, slowly watch the starry sky ☆

Reclining seats are available. Please lie down, relax and be healed by the starry sky! A certified starry sky guide will guide you to the stars and constellations in a fun and easy-to-understand manner using a laser pointer while interweaving the dialects of the island ☆ Also, you can observe stars, planets, and the moon using an astronomical telescope and binoculars. I will do it!

Sanshin live by islanders ♪

In the second half, we will play about 3 songs on Shima Uta Sanshin! An islander born and raised on the island will play and deliver a number of Okinawa's famous songs while explaining the lyrics ♪ Enjoy a relaxing time with the sound of the sanshin under the starry sky ♪

Commemorative photo service with the starry sky in the background ♪

We will take a commemorative photo with the starry sky in the background with a dedicated camera ☆ How about taking a picture with the starry sky that you can not see in the city as a memory of your trip? The photos taken will be sent to you by email at a later date.

    体験場所に行き、ずっと曇りで星はひとつも見えない状態で諦めていたのですが、最後の最後で雲が流れ満点の星空を見ることができました。美ら星アイランドの方もすごく親切でした。ありがとうございました。夏の天の川も見てみたいです。
