Ishigaki - Shimokita 2018/2/5 06:14
Hi there,
I will be on Ishigaki island for a week, then heading off back to mainland Japan, where I would like to head off to Shimokita peninsula.

The closest airport to Shimokita is Misawa airport ("near" Hachinohe) and Aomori airport I would possibly count Hakodate as well since the ferry goes to Oma (but arrives quite late though and no rental car outlet as I understand).

I am not sure which way would be the best and fastest to go.

I will be carrying a 2 week JR Pass so there is an option of going by shinkansen as well from Tokyo.

The Ishigaki flight goes only as far as Haneda.

I would need advise on which way would be best to go though.

Since you have JR pass already, just train from Tokyo with one transfer you'd arrive at Shimokita station.

Flights from Ishigaki (depending on the season) are normally once a day. If cost is the most important, then the ANA or JAL Explorer passes can save a lot of money. Then tend to be around 10,000 yen a person if you have a 90 day temporary stamp in your passport.

The cheapest flight is normally with Peach but does not include luggage.

As mentioned above, as you have a Rail Pass it does not really matter where to fly to as you can get there for the same cost. I would not fly to Fukuoka though as it is a lot longer....
