Yakushima Old Forest Hiking Tour

The sight, scent, and sound of the cedar forest sprawling across Yakushima island will evoke imagination and spur inspiration from within. 

Hike through this national park, which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site. Go in search of ancient trees, some of which are over 1000 years old. 

Get up-close with the flora and fauna of Japan’s Kyushu region, then venture towards the tea plantations. Meet the friendly locals who will regale you with tales of the island, along with providing an insider look into the trade of tea cultivation.
