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.

  • Beautiful landscapes! Beware the shuttles are rare to get there by bus (as well to get that return) the 300 yen for the maintenance of the site is really not excessive given the quality of this last look at the road on your way by bus or other you can see deer or even monkeys go through

  • Take the bus from miyanoura, tackle the yakusugi land. in the 1000 m above sea level. Course is four, very easy to walk. I've selected the course 150 minutes if you have time, shortcuts.

  • Different from Shiratani but well worth the money there also of millennia, and huge trees in our case a little easier than Shiratani because there was less rain and more likely to spot deer and monkeys.
