about Yakushima

Yakushima was nominated as Japan`s first World Heritage Area of Natural Beauty in 1993.  Yakushima is an island of great extremes.  During the winter months the peaks are snow-capped whilst in the south of the island the vegetation is sub-tropical.  At just under 2,000 meters, Yakushima has the highest mountain range in southern Japan.  The island is famed for some of the most ancient living trees on the planet – Yaku sugi – as well as being home to one of the most dense concentration of moss species.  Yakushima has numerous endemic plants, along with an indigenous sub-species of deer and macaque monkeys which easily out-number the human population on the island.

Yakushima is a pristine reminder of what Japan looked like in ancient times and is currently a fine example of how a community can live with respect for their natural environment.
