Shiratani Unsuikyo is a wild and relatively untamed nature park nestled in a large ravine to the northeast of the island of Yakushima. The area is home to some of the huge and ancient cedar trees, or yakusugi, for which Yakushima is well-known, and the most notable ones have even been given names, such as Kugurisugi, Yayoisugi, and Nidaiosugi. Some of these trees have lived for thousands of years and, thus, have grown to impressive sizes. For many years, they have attracted Japanese tourists to the island, with foreign visitors also gradually starting to discover the island’s natural wonders.
