Yakusugi Land is a short bus ride away from both main towns on Yakushima. After paying a small fee, you can immerse yourself in the surrounding forest. Imagine the mystical forests depicted in anime but instead being real. That's exactly what Yakusugi Land is. I...More

Yakusugiland is a little quieter in that there are fewer tourists than at Shiritani, but it is just as beautiful and has a different feel about it. The 30min and 50min walks are very clear pathways; the 80min and 150min walks take you off road....More

There are so many walks/hikes ranging from 20 mins to 10 hours. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Options include short-long hikes or just have a picnic at the waterfall on he rocks at the very bottom. Even the drive...More

After a long hike from shiratani all the way to jomon sugi the previous day my friend and I were looking for an easier path to continue exploring the forest. Yakisugi land is perfect for this goal. You can pick 30, 60, or 120 minute...More

If you love cedar trees, this is definitely the place for you! There was a landslide in one section of the long walk so you can't do a proper loop but i don't think we missed out on much. It's was a good first hike,...More

We did a hike here in wet and drizzly cool weather. The terrain is hilly and slippery, so being fit and properly kitted out is important. There is a path for tourists but to see the less touched forest is the highlight. The path leads...More

This is the place to experience walking amongst the grand old Cedar trees of Yakushima Island. I would recommend hiking attire and poles to hike round the entire route to really appreciate the wonderful scenery.

The drive up to this site is on a road that is one lane in parts. You compete with buses as well. It is worth seeing. Saw quite a few of the local monkeys on the way up. The drive scared my wife. It was...More

You can chose a suitable length of course for yourself. There was a mudslide due to the previous storm which blocked the longest course, so we took the mid-length. We were far from fit but the walk was enjoyable at our own pace. Next time...More
