What is Yakusugi?
The answer is in this Land of ancient cedar forest.
Easy and relaxing, how about a cup of tea or coffee by the creek?
Even if you don’t wish to do trekking at all, you can still enjoy an easy walk in the ancient forest in this course.
The short course goes for 1-2hours. It’s very safe. When it rains, you can use your umbrella and walk in the rain!
Then, we take you to sightseeing for the rest of the tour day (check also Sightseeing
If you wish to spend more time in the forest, the course includes a wild trail and the tour becomes trekking at parts. However, the longer you walk, the deeper you get into the forest. It’s worthwhile.
