Writer: Ubba

Originally from the English Midlands, Ubba has lived, loved and worked in Japan for over 25 years. As with Ubba’s native Great Britain, Japan is an island nation and its people share many of the traits and aspirations of island peoples everywhere; perhaps this is one reason why Ubba has so easily adopted it as a home-from-home, and been adopted in turn! These days, Ubba writes extensively on Japan’s natural beauty, its people and its vibrant culture in the hope that others will want to experience something of the magic and spectacle of this amazing country for themselves.

Kicking Back on Ishigaki Island

With its semi-tropical climate, warm surrounding ocean and extensive, rare and protected coral reefs, Ishigaki is probably the best location for snorkelling in the whole of Japan. Indeed, many would argue there is little else to do there, but the year-round warmth and relaxed pace the island offers makes it equally ideal for those simply seeking respite from the hubbub of city living.
