Yakusugi Landヤクスギランド

Plateau

This is a nearly 270-hectare natural recreation forest located at an elevation of approximately 1,000 meters and situated at the upper stream of the Anbogawa River’s tributary, the Arakawa River. Four courses have been created that allow walkers to enjoy large trees representative of the Yakusugi forest zone including sugi (a type of Japanese cryptomeria or cedar), tsuga (southern Japanese hemlock), and momi (fir), and visitors can enjoy the nature according to their physical ability. Visitors on the 50-minute or 80-minute courses can see Buddha sugi that are estimated to be 1,800 years old, and on the 150-minute course Tenchu sugi that are vying to be Yakushima’s tallest and second tallest trees.

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
