屋久島ツアー

Back to the land of the Forest Gods

Yakushima (23)

Hey everyone, did you all have a great long weekend? We sure did as we travelled south to Yakushima again. I tell you, no matter how many times I go I can`t wait until I can go again as there is so much to see and do!

This time after crossing from Kagoshima we started our 3 day journey with an overnight trip to the famous Jomon Sugi, the monolithic cedar tree said to be between 2000 and 7000 years old.
As we steadily made our way up the trail we ran into a few groups coming down and a number of deer were also there to greet us along.

The weather had been fine until we hit “Wilsons stump” when a few drips of the wet stuff began to fall and by the time we reach Takatsuka Hut, just above Jomon, it was raining steadily. It turned out to be a really adventuresome night in true Yakushima fashion. The rain turned into a downpour as we were setting up the tent and the night was filled with heavy rain, strong winds, and a lightning storm to top it off!!

The next morning we hiked back down under a beautiful blue sky stopping along the way to soak up the magnificence of this ancient forest. It took a while to get back down the trail as a flood of people were coming up but we eventually made our way to the Arakawa Wakare where we made our way over the Tsuji pass, down past the Mononoke hime forest before finishing at the Shiratani Trailhead.

After a wonderful soak in the onsen we headed to the opposite side of Yakushima where we spent a night in the village of Kurio with the team from Diving Club Suns, who were also having a tour to the island. The next day we went to see the Oko no Taki one of the top 100 waterfalls of Japan before heading off to explore the rest of the island before boarding the ferry home.
