Trip Info

The Tachudake course is a combination of a Yakushima forest and mountain hike. If you only have a day to hike on the island and wish to experience the great variation of Yakushima’s environment then this trek is as good as any

The hike begins in the Yakusugi Land forest and we meander around the areas many rivers and streams, passing some giant sugi trees as well large spruce and fir trees. There are a few suspension bridge crossings and during rainstorms the rivers make for exciting viewing. This area also has quite a bit of history attached to it and remainders of this history lie all over the forest floor.
