Yakusugi Land, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

4.5
#1 of 20 in Trails in Kyushu-Okinawa
Explore the ancient, subtropical forests of Yakusugi Land, walking along trails populated by 1,000-year-old cedar trees. The park offers hikes of varying lengths to accommodate visitors with different fitness and time constraints. Ranging from quick 30-minute strolls to longer, more adventurous 2.5-hour trips, the route consists of a single trail with various turn-offs leading back to the starting point, and covers a range of terrain ending at the summit of Tachudake. You can see the ancient trees pretty quickly after leaving the car park, with the first part of the trail consisting of a boardwalk. Less mobile visitors shouldn't be put off the experience, but those planning to complete the hike in full should bring along water, snacks, and sturdy boots.

  • The difficulty of hiking here is relatively low, suggest driving to, time is better control, but the mountain is part of a single lane, encountered on the wrong bus to pay attention to. With the island's public transit pass can be folded into the mountain cooperation gold 100 yen, and tickets will give Bai gorge 200 yen discount coupons. Want to see the appearance of the house long, Misty Green fairyland, here will be a good start. Bus up and down the mountain every day, if not catch the car in the morning to the mountain, the afternoon again uphill, and so on down the bus will be very restricted, only one hour left to watch. Transfer to the mountain Shuttle at the Makino station.

  • Yakushima land is a great hike through yakushima's untamed wilderness. You will see tons of Japanese ceder trees
  • Lovely old cedar trees. Moderate difficulty short hike needed.
  • Wonderful trees
  • Brilliant trails surrounded by an ancient forest, monkeys and deer.
  • Ride vehicles from the ABO route that takes about 15-20 minutes reach the doorway. You can walk in the land base, wood stairs so easily see yakusugi. Even people who have no confidence in the physique and physical fitness can enjoy 10 minutes. Because the toilet is not in advance before land shops and resting place in in advance. Sells accessories made drinks and Yaku Cedar to the gift shop.
