Join me for this 1-day trekking tour in Mount Tachu, one of the most entertaining trails in Yakushima!

Yakushima Island is a very popular destination for those who want to have wonderful experiences in nature. However, this tour around Mount Tachu it is not very crowded with people yet. That’s why I recommend it as a great choice to trek in Yakushima, enjoying the mountains and discovering its beautiful ancient forest.

For this trip, I’ll pick you up at several meeting places, like Miyano-ura, Ono-aida and Anbo port.

From Anbo Village, we’ll move to the entrance of Yakusugi Land (1000 m), the starting point of our trekking.

Yakusugi Land is a natural park full of Yakusugi, giant cedar trees that have many years old. In fact, walking over Arakawa Bridge, you will see many of this unique trees like Budda-sugi, Mitsune(three roots)-sugi and Hahako(mother and child)-sugi.

Then, around the area of Choro(elder)-sugi, we can refile our bottle with fresh water.

Our goal in this journey will be Mt. Tachu (1,497 m). Once we arrive to the giant rock Tenchu-seki (Heaven reaching rock), we’ll enjoy a breathtaking view.

Finally, after taking a break, we’ll return to the forest’s entrance by walking through the same route.

The total length of this walking tour will be of between 8 and 9 hours.
