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. Seibu Trail is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho Edition.

  • It seems but the Jomon cedar and Western forest certified by world natural heritage site. Went in the car, buses were running. Drive Green road is narrow, rock is scary, but fun. Monkeys and deer at all without fear of cars, Chillin' and grooming.

  • When to go around the island passes. And finally in the middle of the road along the way, and the monkey finally relaxed. It is a leisurely sit monkeys are not at all aware and cars are scary things and comes to the car. I felt little diffident will move the car to wait. To bother you in the nature of a drove. It is truly a world natural heritage site. Animals is treasure is understood well.
