10月屋久島ツアー

Yakushima, from sea to sky!

Top_20121024082856.jpg

Once again we went back to Yakushima during the 3 day weekend at the beginning of October, no matter how many times I go I can’t get enough of this place!!

This time instead of the 3 day traverse we decided to take it easy with time by the sea and a short day trip on Sunday. After we arrived on the island we went to visit our friends at YNAC before heading to Kurio to set up our camp. Kurio is a cute little hamlet located over half way around the island and is one of the most popular divesites on the island.

After our camp was setup there was time to head to the beach and wade through the tidal pools that were teeming with life. Before we head home we were planning to go for a dive and after looking at all the creatures in the pools we really started to look forward to it!

The next morning we drove up to the Senpiro waterfall hidden deep in the valley were we stopped for some pictures before heading up to Mt.Mochomu.

I’ve been wanting to climb this mountain for a while and was really excited. The trail is not that long when compared to other routes on Yakushima but the grade makes it quite a hump to the top but believe me ITS WORTH IT! The view from the top is breathtaking!!

After taking in the awe inspiring scenery we headed back to our camp where after a short break it was time for a dive. Dave and I dove here a few years ago and were really eager to get in the water for a sunset dive.

My camera wasn’t working properly so the pictures didn’t turn out like I had hoped but I got a couple that show you a little bit of how beautiful the waters around Yakushima are.

The last day we got up early and after cleaning up our camp we headed out for a bit of sightseeing before getting on the ferry for home. We stopped by a Gajumaru or Banyan tree made famous in the NHK drama “Manten”, as well as the Oko waterfall, one of the top 100 waterfalls in Japan.

As we were driving through the Natural heritage site I got a great shot that is the epitome of Yakushima, on the side of the road we saw a family of Yakushima Macaus and as I was taking their picture a deer calmly walked up beside them and the Macaus didn’t even flinch, pure harmony! Awesome!

I love this place!!

屋久島ツアー

Yakushima Tour report

Top_20121002000645.jpg

Hi everyone once again sorry for the break between blog reports most of my reports have been going to Facebook recently instead of my blog.

皆さんこんにちは最近このブログUP してないんですみませんでした。

Starting this month I'll try and be more consistent in my blog postings, and to start things off I'd like to talk about our most recent tour to Yakushima.

今月からもっとブログUPします!今日のブログはこの前の屋久島ツアーリポートです。

1_20121002000830.jpg 2_20121002000836.jpg

Once again this year we took on the 3 day traverse from the Yodogawa trailhead and ended at the Shiratani Unsuikyo.

今年も三日間で淀川登山口から白谷雲水峡の縦走しました。

3_20121002000950.jpg 4_20121002000957.jpg

The first day we were hoping to make it to at least the Hananoeigo camping area but the rain was too heavy so we decided to cut the route short and stay at the Yodogawa hut the first night.

最初のひーは花之江河までに行くつもりだったんですけど雨がすごくて
淀川小屋までに行けました。

The next morning the rain has lightened up and by around 9 o'clock the sun had come out and the skies were clear when we reached Mt. Miyanoura, At 1935 m the tallest mountain in Kyushu.

次の日の朝雨が止んでおり九州最高峰の宮之浦岳の山頂に着いたときは
青空が広がっていました。

After a short break at the summit we traversed the ridge and headed on down to the Shintakatsuka mountain hut where we stopped for the second night.

山頂のショート休憩の後尾根を降り2日目に泊まる新高塚小屋につきました。

On the third day we woke up early to a star filled sky and after a quick breakfast we packed up and headed out into the darkness. Along the way we caught a beautiful sunrise and after about an hour of walking we reached Jomon Sugi quite possibly the oldest tree in the world.

3日目は星空の中早くに起き朝ごはんを食べまだ暗い中縄文杉に向かって
出発しました。

13_20121002001527.jpg 14_20121002001532.jpg

After posing for pictures in front of the big tree we slowly made our way down past Wilson's stump and onto the toroko michi.

縄文杉の前で写真を撮りまた下りウイルソン株を通りトルコ道に到着しました。

The taxi was going to meet us at the Shiratani Unsuikyo trailhead so after about an hour of walking down the Toroko michi we headed up our last climb to the Tsuki pass and after going past there we made our way slowly down past the moss covered Mononoke's forest before reaching the end of the trail and the end to a great three days of hiking and camping in the beautiful mountains of Yakushima.

トルコ道を1時間ほど歩き白谷雲水峡方面へ向かいました.途中もののけの森を進み
白谷雲水峡登山口に到着しました。美しい森の中で過ごして本当に素晴らしい
三日間になりました。

I just want to say thank you to a great bunch of people who worked really hard during the long trek.

重たい荷物を抱え最後までがんばった皆さんにとても感謝しています
ありがとうございました!
