How to travel between the Yaeyama Islands and Tokyo

By direct flight

Skymark, ANA and JTA (Japan Transocean Air), a member of the JAL Group, operate direct flights between Tokyo (ANA and JTA from Haneda Airport, Skymark from Narita Airport) and New Ishigaki Airport on Ishigaki Island, the transportation hub of the Yaeyama Islands. Flight duration is around three hours. The regular one way fare by ANA and JTA is about 60,000 yen, while discount fares are usually available for between 20,000 and 50,000 yen. An air pass can be of great value on these flights. Skymark's regular one way fare is around 24,000 yen, while discount fares are usually available from around 14,000 yen.

By air via Naha Airport

More frequent and possibly cheaper flight connections between Tokyo and Ishigaki are available via Naha Airport on the Okinawa Main Island:
