    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.


Trip Info

The hike to Janokuchi Waterfall is one of the many short course hikes that can be done in half day or less. These hikes are ideal for making the most of your time on Yakushima as you could go for a hike as soon as you arrive on the island and just before you leave the island.

Your adventure awaits!
