Then, you will trek on the trail for around 2 hours. This part will be tough, but entertaining. You get to see the biggest tree stump! Not only will you see the tree stump, but you'll also get to step in and check how it is like to be inside the stump of other characteristic Yakusugi trees, and finally, the Jomon Sugi.

After some time visiting the Jomon Sugi, you will return on the same route back. This tour will be approximately 10 to 11 hours. 

*Please note: This popular course gets very crowded on the weekends, Japanese holidays and during the summer (from late July to September), even though it’s in the middle of mountain.

For an easier trekking experience, you can choose to walk about three hours into the forest. You will then be taken sightseeing for the rest of the tour's duration.

If you choose a full day of trekking, you'll climb up the hill to Taiko-Iwa Rock, from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the wide deep green valley and the highest peaks of Yakushima. That depends upon the weather, however; on a misty day, views are severely limited.

Take the same route back, for a hike of about 6 hours in total, or, if you would like to enjoy more time in the forest, you can make a detour onto a different route, which is less crowded with tourists (a total of seven hours at most).

Lunch is provided during the tour, which ends with a drop-off back at your hotel.

This island didn't get the title of UNESCO's World Natural Heritage site for no reason. On this tour, you can experience and understand what Yakushima is about!

In the morning, you will go kayaking through the lower part of Anbo river. Then, in the afternoon, you'll have a chance to walk by the upper part of the same river that goes through Yakusugi Land, situated deep in the ancient cedar forest.

The Anbo river is the longest river on this island, although access by kayak is limited due to its steepness. Therefore, your kayaking time is only for half of the day. Get ready to paddle out deep into the emerald-green valley!

Then for the walking portion of the tour, you will visit Yakusugi Land. Even if you don’t wish to go trekking, you can still enjoy a leisurely walk in the ancient forest in this course. The short course goes for approximately one to two hours. It’s a very safe trail that when it rains, you can use an umbrella and continue walking in the rain!
