Description

Discover one of the highlights of the island of Yakushima: Yakusugi Land, the home for ancient cedar trees over 1000 years.

In the southwest of Japan, Yakushima stands as an unspoiled paradise: a mountainous deep forest covered with clouds. One of the most easy-access destinations in this island is the natural park of Yakusugi Land.

Here, you can find several hiking trails of different lengths, that will lead you to some of the most impressive cedars in this primeval forest.

This time, I propose to go on a short hiking trip: 1 or 2 hours of hiking in a completely safe environment. Even if it rains, you can take your umbrella and walk under the rain! After this short walk, we can go sightseeing for the rest of the tour day.

However, you can stay longer in the forest if you want to, exploring deeper areas in a wilder hiking trail.

The total length of the tour will be between 3 and 6 hours, depending on your wishes.

If you want to visit the wonderful Yakusugi Land, please get in touch with me! I can help you organize your visit according to your time and the things you want to do. 

You can also join me for a guided tour in Shiratani Unsuikyo, another magical destination in the island of Yakushima.
