Izakaya in Ishigaki-jima

This little Ishigaki city izakaya is a friendly refuge true to its name, which means 'the shade of the forest'. Local treats are sliced steak of Ishigaki beef (¥1280) and the microbrew ishigaki-jima-zake (¥500). Look for the plants and tree trunks outside, and meet some friendly locals under the canopy of an ersatz forest.
