Shiratani Unsuikyo Valley, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

(4.9/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
A luscious forest with a network of trails suitable for all abilities, Shiratani Unsuikyo Valley remains accessible yet wild and remote in spirit, containing the majority of the island's ancient cedar trees. Uncover the magical sight of "Moss Forest," where everything is touched by an emerald green hue. Paths are clearly marked in English and numerous trails offer hikes that take between 30 minutes and 5 hours. Wear appropriate footwear, and keep in mind that the trails here vary from ancient paths of the Edo Period, to the paved walkways of the 21st century.

  • I think I can come back, if you hurry the shiratani and drum rock via one or two hours. In fact most was who was on the same bus to go return in half a day. It is, but I think I only half a day not too good. Unique shaped angled blurred out, covered with MOSS and trees are found in the forest of yakusugi land or near the Jomon cedar, cannot be seen only in this shirataniunsuikyo. You can visit strolling the drum rocks near the non-difference between the high and low without a lot. We recommend beginner skiers have a variety of courses, a full day, visit.

  • 這裡跟宮崎俊筆下的幽靈公主一樣,充滿驚奇驚喜,景色優美。一般人會坐車到白谷雲水峽入去。但亦可以由荒川登山口經楠川分岐入辻峠,再入太鼓岩及苔之森。 沿途景色優美,空氣清新,只要裝備齊全,行山杖,防水褸,行山鞋,食物及水帶備,便可輕鬆享受大自然的偉大。
