Seibu Trail, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

4.5
#2 of 20 in Trails in Kyushu-Okinawa
Navigate a trail that works its way beneath a thick, verdant canopy of ancient cedar trees on Seibu Trail. The trail cuts through Yakushima island, which features huge swathes of protected nature reserves, including a 18,958 ha (46,844 ac) UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve. Being an unspoiled natural wonderland, the area around the trail abounds in wildlife, among which Yakushika deer and Yakushika monkeys roam and climb in great numbers. Make sure to bring your camera to capture photos of these distinctive animals, who generally don't mind by human attention.

  • You can drive to realize the severe nature of Yakushima Island terrain. You can see how road is narrow but some awesome views. During the drive to deer 4 times the monkey is encountered once. Also alarmed at least for a while was healed. Are the tiny dot in the image.

  • People omit the narrowness of the road and the abundance of wild animals that you wrote so you can take action in the evening or at night should check closing times and periods at night. And going out would have no confidence in driving on local cars are waiting for Nice, do not alert anyone driving with confidence, is the mobile phone has not a lot. If you rent a car smaller is better.
