Yakushima

Whether you're in Yakushima for a few days or a longer vacation, you'll find more than enough tourist highlights to keep you and your family entertained.

Tokyo, the national capital, is 650 miles northeast of Yakushima, while Kuchinoerabu Island is 20 miles to the west.

The Yakushima Botanical Research Park plays an integral role in conserving the region's botanical specimens. Be sure to stop by and support the work that they do.

Whether you're meeting up with friends or just enjoying some lunch in the peaceful surroundings, Shitogo Banyan Tree is a lovely place to kick back and relax.

We often think of a river as being quite tranquil, but a visit to places such as Oko Fall and Toroki Falls paints a different picture. Senhiro Fall and Ōko-no-taki are also known for their untamed vistas.

Surrounded by shady trees and soft grass, Shiratani Cloud Water Valley is a favorite escape for wildlife and visitors alike.

Turn off your phone and have a rest from the modern world at Mt. Mocchomudake and Mount Tachudake. Nature enthusiasts will also have a terrific time at Mount Miyanoura and Shiratani Unsuikyo.

You're sure to find lots of interesting artifacts and stories at the assorted cultural establishments here. The Yakusugi Nature Museum, the Yakushima Environmental Culture Village Center and the Umigame-kan should be at the top of your itinerary.

Religious sites are often quite moving. If you'd like to experience Yakushima's spiritual side, inquire about a tour at Yaku Shrine.

Snap some snapshots and have a chat with the locals at Jomonsugi and Wilson Stump, a couple of distinctive landmarks.

After checking out the base of Yakushima Lighthouse, visit the various vantage points and admire it with the coastline in the background.

If you're looking for an additional activity in the Yakushima area, be sure to check out Anbo River.
