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.

  • Rain is often so called in Yakushima Island, it rained 35 days per month. Fortunately blessed with fine weather, went to the yakusugi land. Yakusugi land elevation is 1,000 m more than the snow was there on the road on the way. Enter your paying forest environment maintenance promotion assistance fund. Walked the 30-minute course in a matter of hours. There up and down this course is maintained and easy walking, BC cedar, millennia of Cedar are big you could see trees. Was able to enjoy the nature of Yakushima Island.

  • You have there some trouble for do, a brisk walk in the mountains, but paid itself back. All greeting there about and by each other. Huge giant trees thousands of years old, unimaginable.

  • 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!
