Other short course hikes include Shiratani Unsuikyo, Hagami Waterfall, Otaki Watefall and Yakusugi Land. I can arrange hiking gear rental as well as good accommodation and transportation to Yakushima.
- Take a hike through a sub-tropical forest in the lowland of Yakushima. The vegetation is very different to that found further up in the sub-alpine areas.
- The Janokuchi Waterfall hike could be a 4 hour half day trip or in the summer you could extend this into a much longer day with a picnic by the waterfall.
- Some of these hikes are only 30 minutes or less from the port and you could be on your ferry departing Yakushima by midday.
