A nature lover’s paradise, Yakushima is a small circular island 20km wide located off the south coast of Kyushu. The interior of the island is blistered with high mountains, snow capped in winter, blanketed by dense forests of Japanese cedar and magnificent Rhododendrons.

In contrast to the mountainous core, the coastline is a subtropical paradise of sandy beaches lapped by the waters of the Pacific Ocean.

With an extensive network of hiking trails suitable for most levels of fitness, and some invigorating seaside hot springs, Yakushima is a delightful island to escape for a few days to enjoy hiking and bathing with a spectacular backdrop of mountains and ocean.
