Welcome to Yakushima
If you're a nature lover or an avid hiker, Yakushima (屋久島), designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1993, is one of the most rewarding islands in the Southwest Islands. The craggy mountain peaks of the island's interior are home to the world-famous yakusugi (屋久杉; Cryptomeria japonica), ancient cedar trees that are said to have been the inspiration for some of the scenes in Miyazaki Hayao's animation classic Princess Mononoke.
