Shizuka and André
Nosoko is a quite village in the northern part of Ishigaki Island. We have Mountains and Wilderness on one site and then there is the beach, a three minutes walk away. Lots of pocket beaches. No tourists! you are almost alone on those kind of private beaches. Great to snorkel, you will find all kind of exotic fishes and corals and a million other things under water. Or you can treck trough woods and hike on mount Mape to enjoy an exceptional view to the other islands of the Yeayama island group. Wake up to the sound of wild birds in the tropics and take a break! Watch the myriad of starry things flowing through the Milky Way. (Ishigaki Island is known for the clear skies and so starry nights. How about such a quiet and relaxing vacation? There are two hammocks at our garden awaiting you. You can take a nap or read a book in them and feel the soft breeze from the ocean under a shadow spending canopy of tropical leaves. The Guesthouse is far away from the main road ...no traffic noise, only sometimes an old tractor passed bye. The terrace gives you the possibility to make a BBQ with e.g. the local beef specialty called Ishigaki Gyu, which is similar to Kobe Beef.
About us: We are a married couple Shizuka (Japanese) and André (German). We live in Ishigaki for more then 13 years now. We are interested in the Okinawa culture, that is one reason why we are here, one of the the others is: the magic of the beautiful Yaeyama Islands. Beside, I am a designer (andregessner . com) working home and Shizuka works in a ocean research center and know lots of fishy things, lol. Please contact us and ask us everything! In addition, possible activities during your stay: kayaking, Japanese-, German-, or English conversation classes, Japanese-, Okinawan- and German food cooking classes, folk craft making experience, etc etc etc... * You can rent a kayak (double, sit on top ocean kayak) from us. (3000 yen for a day.) * Or you can rent a gas BBQ plus a gas cartridge, and make you own BBQ on your terrace. (1500 yen a day) Be aware, because it is a place surrounded by rich nature, spiders, geckos, mosquitos and ants may enter the room. You will have mosquito screens, protecting you room from those creatures. If you don't like to live near the jungle, you should better rent a hotel room in Ishigaki city.
We have two restaurants in the village, and then there is the beach...thats it. Some other restaurants around, but u will need a car to get there. Shopping is best downtown, you will finde several supermarkets, and tons of lil shops with all kind of stuff. Also endless restaurants and bar. Or you can make trips via ferry boats to the other islands, we will help you by finding interesting tours. Also we know where to dive and what are the best dive shops...Ichigaki has some very interesting dive sites, e.g. a manta cleaning station. Anyway we know the islands very well and can help to find the right adventures for you.
