The Ishigaki Island is renowned worldwide for its crystal blue sea. The Crudesur Chapel, the name deriving from the Spanish word “Cruz del Sur” meaning “Southern Cross,” is located on the seafront in the vast 297,500-square-meter site of the ANA InterContinental Ishigaki Resort. It is where couples can realize a resort wedding in the bright sunlight and right beside the emerald green sea.
The glass altar and the glass wall behind it give an open ambience to the chapel. The bride walks on the wedding aisle along with the majestic sound of the pipe organ to meet her bridegroom at the altar, where they pledge eternal love with the backdrop of the sea horizon.
After the ceremony, the married couple walks down the great staircase at the front of the chapel under a shower of petals. A champagne toast in a gazebo in the hotel garden covered with colorful subtropical flowers will also become an unforgettable event.
The Ishigaki Island also offers easy access to Iriomote, Taketomi, Kohama, and other neighboring islands, making your wedding trip truly memorable.
