One of the most entertaining trails in Yakushima!

The course starts from Yakusugi-Land. We trek through the breathtaking ancient cedar forest, and when we get to the peak (1,497m), you will be surprised by a unique giant rock pointing out the sky. The rock called Tenchu-seki (meaning heaven reaching rock) is taller than most buildings you see in the cities. Stand at the bottom of the rock and look it up, it’s amazing!
Also, from the peak, you can enjoy the view of Anbo town and the ocean beyond.

So far, this course is not the first choice for most tourists. Thus, it is not crowded.
If you wish to experience both Yakushima’s ancient forest and mountain climbing, this is it!
