Food in Ishigaki is very good. It`s a little different from the traditional Japanese food. Okinawa has it`s own style. Be sure to eat some Ishigaki beef sushi, Okinawa soba (Soki soba), and the sashimi is amazing. The service here is definately one of the best in Japan. As a customer you truly get it all. A delicious meal, a heafty portion, a very reasonable price, and great service. Here are some of the top restaurants in Ishigaki.
