Hike Mt. Kuromi ~the Nicest Peak in Yakushima~

2016.05.10

Introduction

■What is Yakushima?
Yakushima... An island of moss green, a botanical treasury plenty of forests from ancient times, showered forever by the southern heaven, where the islanders live along the vivid cycle of four seasons more intimately than elsewhere in Japan...

This island is not entitled the World Natural Heritage by UNESCO for no reason.
So, we are here to help you know and experience what Yakushima is about!

Enjoy Yakushima field tour with our licensed local guide!

■Hike up to the nicest peak of Yakushima!
If the heaven smiles to Mt. Kuromi, you will be awed on the peak with 360° panoramic view of the highest mountains of Yakushima, including the very highest, Mt. Miyanoura.
And the course is easier and shorter than Mt. Miyanoura trekking.

Easier, yet it’s not just easy at all. It is quite hiking, a vertical journey through the wide range of forest types, beyond the tree line, into the unpredictable sky of the high altitude (1,831m).

Note that beyond the tree line, where no tree is taller than ourselves, nothing protects you from sunshine or raindrops falling from the sky.
If you care, sunscreen is helpful, and rainwear is indispensable.

■Do you prefer to prepare your meal for the tour on your own?
If "NO", the lunch (also morning for some tour) we offer is Japanese style "Bento" (lunch box) like in the picture gallery: 1. Rice Balls 2. Cooked Burdock 3. Fried Chicken 4. Fried Fish Ball 5. Mackerel 6. Rolled Omellets

- Trekking poles(if needed)
- Rainwear (a set of jacket and pants, no matter what the weather cast says)
