  • Small museum but very informative. They have little audio guides for people who don't speak or understand Japanese. Lovely insight to a beautiful island. There's a cafe near the museum with good food ...  more »
  • .... but would have been more interesting with more comprehensive English labelling. There are some great exhibits, and it is well worth looking around. The building itself is beautiful as well.  more »

  • 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.

  • 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 2meter long chainsaw if you're strong enough. You can take a walk there are few paths around the museum too, which is nice.

  • This is the place to study evolution and history of yakusugi. Look at this the more so advanced further ya HISA cedar and Jomon cedar, but you know. In addition, wood is on the second floor had no photo puzzles are interesting. Take a look at advanced challenge to try please.

  • 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.
