Hike up to the highest peak of Yakushima!
Mt. Miyanoura is the highest peak in Kyushu area which includes Yakushima.
This mountain has been visited by many mountain lovers even before Yakushima was entitled World Natural Heritage, since it had been listed Japanese Best 100 Mountains selected by Kyuya Fukada.
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.
