Yaeyama Museum

Yaeyama Museum is small, interesting and worth a trip just to see some of the oldest human remains found in this part of the world, dating back about 24,000 years. Note that any item in the museum that’s over, say, 200 years old is not Japanese; it’s Okinawan. And since the Allies didn’t bomb Ishigaki Island, the stuff is real.
