2-Day Mt Miyanoura and Jomon Sugi Hiking Tour on Yakushima Island - Kumage District, Japan

Duration: 2 days
Location: Kumage District, Japan

From USD
$902.53

This is a two day hiking adventure to Mt Miyanoura and Jomon-sugi. This tour includes a heavy amount of walking, but the beautiful nature and view of Yakushima island will make it all worthwhile.

On the first day of the tour, you will start from the Yodogawa entrance and climb over Mt Miyanoura, the highest peak of Yakushima.

It is a tough and long trekking course, a vertical journey through the wide range of forest types, beyond the tree line, into the unpredictable sky of the high altitude (1,936m).
Unpredictable but if lucky, a 360° panoramic view from the top of the island is more than rewarding!

Note that beyond the tree line, where no tree is taller than ourselves, nothing protects you from sunshine or raindrops falling from the sky.
If you care, sunscreen is helpful, and rainwear is indispensable.
