Enjoy panoramic view of Yakushima from Mt Kuromi!
Join me to enjoy the 360° panoramic view of Yakushima from the summit of Mt Kuromi (1,831m)! The route is slightly easier and shorter than the route up to Mt Miyanoura, which is the highest peak in Yakushima.
Let me guide you through this majestic place, story telling about the history of the island, the local lifestyle, and the diversity of the nature, from the point of view of a local JMGA mountain guide.
Yakushima is one of the islands of Japan, located to the south of Kagoshima, which is at the southern tip of Kyushu island. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is an island with rich nature left in its wild state, and coexisting with small local settlements. It is also known for being the inspiration for the movie “Princess Mononoke” from Studio Ghibli.
Come and experience the wild island of Japan, full of moss green blessed with heavenly showers, an island of botanical treasure and ancient forests..!
