Do please take a hike in this National Park. We hired a guide and he was excellent, we learnt so much during our day long walk. We had a bento picnic sitting on a large rock on the edges of one of the gushing rivers. When you think you have seen one amazing tree after another, there is always one... More

In my mid-70s, in the rain, with worn out, slippery shoes (I later threw out, and should not have attempted this walk in), I spent 3.5 hours climbing Yakusugiand trails, tripping on roots and falling (fortunately not too far and not too hard) two times. It took my legs 5 days to recover, so I wasn't in any shape to... More

If you are looking at walking on proper trails or boards while being in the cedar forests, then this is for you! I would recommend that you go there in the morning so that you can see the pretty morning dew on the ferns. It might be cold so do bring an outer wear along! From the entrance, you can... More

Yakushima is a beautiful island where nature is left (more or less) untouched. Yes, untouched, but in a Japanese sense of the word. The ancient Sugi trees used to be logged, but that has stopped and some of the true giants have been left standing. There are numerous hiking trails, but some of them require bringing your own gear (like... More

This is the shortest hike out of the big three (Shiratani Unsuikyo, Jomon Sugi), even for the long course (about two hours). It's an easy hike, with some very nice scenery and a lot of old, impressive trees. Tip: take the morning bus all the way to Kigensugi (an impressive 3000 year old tree), then take the return bus to... More

Yakusugi Land is not as spectacular as Shiratani Unsuikyo but I still loved it. We did this trail first so we enjoyed the hike. The first portion of the hike was all wooden path and easy to navigate. You can stop after the first portion if you want. The back portion is not as easy, especially in the rain. It... More

This is a very easy hike, with wooden platforms near the beginning and easy signposting to follow. Plenty of cedars to see and the occasional river to cross, though it never amazed me in the same way that Shiratani Unsuikyo did. Maybe good if you're exhausted from a more taxing hike from earlier in your stay?

Relaxing and beautiful. Nice walk among the cedar trees, on bridges over spring waters. A very pleasant experience.

We were not sure whether we would appreciate this place having been to Shiratani Unsuikyo and Jomonsugi. But we decided to give a go and we were glad we did. You never got tired of looking at beautiful trees and moss in Yakushima, and we did enjoy the walk in Yakusugi Land (we did a 150 minute walk but it... More
