    I absolutely LOVED staying at Shiraho Friends House. Everyday they helped me make perfect plans, the facilities are wonderful, everyone I met is kind and welcoming, it's super close to the beach, and I didn't want to leave. The people at this hostel are the reason I want to come back to Ishigaki (and why it was hard to leave).

    Hiro san is very friendly and nice, he introduced me the places of interest around Ishigaki. This is the first time i camping on the roof top, the stars are beautiful at night, with meteor too! The location is very near to the airport, very convenient!

    I had a great time at Shiraho Friends! Both hosts made me feel so welcome and were able to help me plan all my days to have the best possible time on Ishigaki. Everyday I felt like I had arrived "home" when I got back to Shiraho. Thank you!

    Hiro’s great! He’s very helpful and cares deeply about your experience. He encourages everyone staying to hang out with each other and I made lots of friends while I was there! I loved that there was a free kitchen so I could save money by making my own meals once in a while.

    The owner of this place is very friendly! So friendly that when I came in the evening (rather tired), he sat down with me and spent a long time telling me everything about the island. I had to stop him when he started telling me how to rent a car as I don't drive! Shiraho is easy to get to by bus from airport or the port (but mind the last bus). There is good food in the village, and a rooftop deck for yoga / stargazing.

    Facilities are a little dated but the hostel is very nice, the rooftop and balconies are really nice features. The hostel offers a pickup service which is extremely useful if you don't have a car since reaching some places by bus is challenging or even impossible. The service is usually cheaper then buses and they even made ours into a small tour to see beautiful places in the area of Kabira. Highly recommended!

    Beautiful island! Shiraho Friends House was an excellent base for exploring Ishigaki. The staff were so helpful and genuinely interested in us getting the most out of our time on the island. They provided maps, recommended routes and told us how to access local beauty spots. Little extras like shampoo and body wash in the showers were much appreciated.

    Great little spot, with really lovely, helpful staff. We were there over Christmas and they cooked a big meal for everyone there, and even made something vegetarian for us. The location is a pretty isolated however, so be prepared to travel for everything- even a konbini.
