  • From the Yodo River trailhead miyanoura-Dake-Jomon sugi-Sanzan truck road at night. Nature of Yakushima Island is nice, especially the forest zone, Awa-Dake, fan Yue, chestnut raw Mt. view is very helpful. Very rich in water, some flows on the trail, did not have to worry about water. Deer and monkeys are also met. There is also mountain seems to want to go.

  • Yodo River trailhead from back in the day. Beautiful jianghe, flowers and stones flat marshland and miyanoura-Dake mountain is a vivid contrast of green and rocks. Climbing down 6 hours, and it took 5 hours. There where also sunny road is becoming like River on rainy days may be dangerous.

  • It was quite tough trekking. Climb up to the very top in small island, so views from the Summit was the best. You can also buy ascent commemorative badge as souvenir shop under the.
