  • Standing before going to the yakusugi land Yu came. In hurry in consultation with time, I think if you changed stop by good or. Also have drop in preparation is also go in a review on the way back, it's good. Could be overturned as a living culture in the lives of the people of the island of Yakushima Cedar how important it was, not just as a natural cedar.

  • Trail to Jomon Cedar's famous truck road. Walk by a monotonous and said. However, the advance in Yakushima Island nature pictures of Dolly's history and once-thriving villages of here you can study. Thanks to studying here, the next day went to the Jomon sugi history truck road is boring without the gentleman.

  • Very nice museum !! You can walk barefoot on a wooden floor of yakusugi inside.. It's not a big museum but it's very well made, you can learn about the logging and the trees even if you don't speak Japanese. There is a video room, little games with wood, you can even try to lift a 2meter long chainsaw if you're strong enough. You can take a walk on a few paths around the museum too, which is nice.
  • Every time the visit. Take your shoes off the entry. with 5 cm square tab wood floor to walk on the brink grin, it's nice. Natural original photographic postcards and other souvenirs, photos and books. Yakusugi and Yakushima Island historical things are easy to understand, are exhibited.

  • Yakushima Island, nature, can people's life. I'd put a little knowledge before going to the Jomon sugi. Was hard to climb on a bike is very nice.

  • And exhibited Jomon cedar, broken branches, touched by hand. History of deforestation of the island posted by Panel is now studying. In addition, excellent wood puzzle. Admission 600 yen and? enough in Jomon sugi course return bus waiting time to go slightly higher, so deliberately aimed as a destination rather than a thought.
