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.

  • You can realize that it's running in the wilderness was recognized as a world heritage site. I think you can see various animals are quite likely. Drops fell from the trees here and there, even just a sunny day, though muddy or wet surfaces. Often quite a distance, not parting with oncoming traffic, so if you have time and may it becomes a very difficult and not those who are confident in the operation. U turn is almost impossible if you start. Speed is useless, slowly and thoroughly enjoy.

  • Meet wild deer and the monkey forest road. Without fear of humans they are, and cross the road. So excited at first, take a picture, but too many have in the middle would get bored may (lol) just the road is a small place, the operation should be carefully. I think even if one person to rent a moped is.

  • Rent a car and go around the island. Yen from Yakushima Island Lighthouse during the building without the encounter in the dense forests of Yakushima monkeys and deer. 往kimasu facing a difficult road. It is a gratuity in Yakushima Island tourism sector.
