Explore Tokyo and dive Yonaguni, famous for its hammerhead sharks, stunning marine life and the mysterious Iseki stones.
The trips starts in Tokyo, from where you will fly down to the sub-tropical island of Ishigaki, with its white sandy beaches, coral reef, jungle and mountains; a far cry from the metropolis you’ve just left! From here, it’s a short flight to Yonaguni Island, where you’ll spend the rest of your holiday in a small traditional Japanese style property, soaking up the culture.
