Hike along the wooded trails at Banna Park, a picturesque park filled with activities for all ages. The lush vegetation here includes over 2,500 tropical plant species, crisscrossed by numerous trails and small wooden bridges. Look for the section dedicated to butterflies and exotic flowers (accompanied by information boards), and then take the kids to an adventure playground, full of wild imaginative climbing structures, massive slides, and rope swings. Trek to the southernmost point of the park for extensive views of Ishigaki City and Taketomi Island.

Banna Park reviews
I came here only because it was close to the cave. This huge park should have a higher rating. There are many lookouts and walking trails. It’s quite hilly so a bit challenging as a cyclist. However..... more »
We drove thru the park and stopped at a few of the observation towers to see the great view of the island. We took the Segway tour which was very interesting. more »
Went on a night walking tour and seen many cool animals. The roads were covered in toads frogs and gekkos. Seen several owls in the trees and a red kingfisher. Took a detour on a forest trail and seen a habu hebi on the stairs, the highlight of the tour for me.
A big place, and good view of the city
