Enjoy an informative and scenic tour of the island on this exciting excursion. We will cover a range of topics such as history, Japanese culture, geology, ecology and just about anything you might be interested in!
This hiking tour is designed to venture around the 100 km circumference coastal road. It can be done in either direction, depending on your accommodation location, so we will ensure the tour goes in a direction to maximize your experience.
Every tour is always slightly different so we can make the most of whatever weather we have. If you come in the cooler months, we concentrate on short hikes, waterfalls and secret spots. If you are here in summertime, we recommend water time, with freshwater and ocean swimming spots to be enjoyed.
Together, we will figure out the things that may interest you the most so we do not repeat the same tour for everyone! There are several short hiking options, some interesting local shops and even the ruins of a secret abandoned village.
We will be sure to go through the beautiful Seibu Rindoh world heritage road. It is a narrow road on the western side of Yakushima that usually has local deer and monkeys. This road also includes Yakushima Lighthouse, the oldest operating lighthouse in Japan.
