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.

Is not interested in the natural trees and forests, but startling in the way of life of plants here, the more powerful. Firebird, of as Earth's history, or biological evolution, of I such spectacular natural drama are spread here and there, meditation time, staff.

  • 屋久杉園 ヤクスギランド 位於島上中央位置,由屋久杉自然館靠車前往需時25分鐘。當中會經過迂迴曲折的山路,靠車時要份外留神。入場費為300 yen。園內有四條步道(course/ コース)可選擇: 需時分別是30分鐘、50分鐘、80分鐘和150分鐘。當日走了最短需時30分鐘的步道,步道規劃得很好,比白谷雲水峽好走得多。短短的步道可以看到很多綠油油的杉樹,吊橋和溪谷。適合一家大小前往。 
  • Blacket Cedar plenty of walking, very nice. Best tour course a lot, so depending on the physical fitness test. Cedar public phone box is located near the entrance. And near the springs of the drink was delicious.
