YAKUSHIMA EXPERIENCE understands that your holiday doesn`t need to be packed full of physically demanding hikes…
The island sights tours offer a semi-rest day where your legs take a rest and you can enjoy an informative, scenic tour of Yakushima. We try to cover a range of topics such as history, Japanese culture, geology, ecology and just about anything you might be interested in!
Our tour is based around the island`s 100km circumference coastal road. It can be done in either direction, so depending on your accommodation location, we will ensure the tour goes in a direction to maximise your experience.
YAKUSHIMA EXPERIENCE Island Sights Tours are always slightly different, and this is so we can make the most of whatever weather Yakushima throws at us…
If you come in the cooler months, we concentrate on short hikes, waterfalls and secret spots that our guides share on the day, and of course optional onsen. If you are here in summertime, we highly recommend some water time, with fresh water and ocean swimming spots on the menu.
YAKUSHIMA EXPERIENCE will figure out the things that may interest you the most….
We don`t want to just repeat the same tour for everyone! This means there are several short hiking options, some interesting local shops, and even the ruins of a secret abandoned village.
All tours go through the beautiful Seibu Rindoh World Heritage Road, a narrow road on the western side of Yakushima that usually has local Yakushima deer and monkeys. This road also includes Yakushima Lighthouse, the oldest operating lighthouse in Japan…
