Amazing tour and should not miss!!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Went on this nice hike with Steve from YES tours. It was amazing. Steve has amazing knowledge of the area and awesome guide. Hike is tough at certain locations but very enjoyable. On the day I went there was a slight drizzle but the canopy provided enough cover, in addition to the rain gear I was wearing

Nice trails in Cedars
Nov 2019
Beautiful cedar forests with some nice, well maintained trails, and a few trees to be found (with relatively easy access) that are over 2000 years old. Stunning all around, with trees and waterfalls and crystal clear streams.

Hiking and sightseeing at the top of Yakushima
Dec 2018
This is why people come to Yakushima and is the easiest way to gain altitude. The bus is the best way to climb up to Yakusugi Land. Bring umbrellas or ponchos, as the weather can change in an instant and it is a completely different ecosystem from any of the coastal areas of Yakushima. I drove because it was the off-season and there were fewer buses. I was constantly dangerously close to driving off the narrow road because I was driving with one eye/hand and taking pictures with the other eye/hand. The scenery is breathtaking. The flora and fauna are completely different as you gain altitudes and go through several ecological zones. This is the part of Yakushima that would make me go back again and again. Do not skip it even if you just came to Takushima for the hot springs. Visited December 2018.

Absolute must visit. Stunning lush green cedar tree forest, with many trees over 1000 years old. There are 5 trails, each different length and difficulty level. It is all well signposted, so impossible to get lost. It’s a magic forest!

Well worth a visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
Visit will be dictated by bus times if you dont have a car. We went for the one hr version.

Being reasonably fit we did the red trek (theretically 50 mins ) in 30. could we have fitted in the 80 min one?..probably but not worth a very long wait if u miss the bus. also dont want to stumble esp as 80 min trek is not a prelaid path.

While I preferred Shiritani Unsuikya Yasuigi land has a more exciting approach in bus and does have a small base with restrooms and a gift shop.

Entrance fee is reduced if you have a one day pass(strongly recommended if going to Yasuigi land). Also reduced if you have been to shiritani, and vice versa.

I think this is a must if you are on Yakushima and not doing the BIG treks to the peaks or jomon cedar.

Excellent treks amid cedar trees
Oct 2019 • Solo
The other rain forest area fully equipped for trekking. A large choice of trails very well marked on a fairly flat ground although many stairs up and down.

Okay for the family
Oct 2019 • Solo
I think if you do this after Shiratani Unsuikyo, it’ll be a bit disappointing so maybe plan to do it beforehand. This place is much more family friendly though If you are planning to wear shoes you don’t want to get dirty and have an easy, paved path the whole way. I only did the 50 min route because I was tired from hiking to Taikowa rock the day before, and the way the public bus times work out you either leave at 11am or 3pm. I wanted to do other things in Yakushima so I was in and out of yagasuki land. This place still has a lot of great cedars, plants and moss for you to check out in an organized fashion if that’s what you’re looking for.

The bonus is the drive there, it’s absolutely beautiful and I was already satisfied before I got to yagasuki land!

What a great moderate hike though ancient trees. Worth the visit for sure. The drive is a little harrowing, but beautiful and completely worth it.

Raining at top but dry on lowlands
May 2019 • Couples
Didnt get a chance to walk as it was raining at the top. Second day, dry on lowlands but raining heavily at top.
There is a broadwalk and slopes, drove up to see a huge tree kigensui 10 min from Yakusugi land.
Roads are two way and very narrow at the top so you have to be quite a brave driver although tour buses do go up.
Public bus goes up. But if its raining heavily and you cant do the walk, there's not much to see. So having a car gives more autonomy.
