Yakusugi Land, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

(4.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Don't be deceived by "yakusugi land" the cute name! (Lol) 80, 150 course trail complete minute. Hiking and mountain climbing as well as preparation is required. In yakusugi land lot of yakusugi scooped up and covered with MOSS, lined with forests and the atmosphere is quite different. Guides in Yakushima Island, Ms where there a little deeper into the island, so please come and visit!

  • Road bus from miyanoura route 592, passing the 70-minute, no one will finally pass oncoming traffic coming and going to give way in monkeys and deer are smaller than the mainland but the snow and 80-minute schedule of yakusugi land won't go away quickly, accustomed to walking on the Boardwalk and melting can walk without mud cut 2 Shanshan bud on the stump was maintained and walkable and has grown to two Cedar planted or was so
