Kayaking and Trekking Adventure in Yakushima

2016.05.02

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!

■Trace a river runs through Yakushima in one day!
In the morning, we go kayaking through the lower part of Anbo river, the longest river in Yakushima.
In the afternoon, we walk by the upper part of the same river that goes through Yakusugi-Land, situated deep in the ancient cedar forest.
Please check Kayaking and Yakusugi-Land for more details.
