Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Kagoshima Prefecture / Kumage-gun / Yakushima-cho / Seibu Trail
Navigate a trail that works its way beneath a thick, verdant canopy of ancient cedar trees on Seibu Trail. The trail cuts through Yakushima island, which features huge swathes of protected nature reserves, including a 18,958 ha (46,844 ac) UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve. Being an unspoiled natural wonderland, the area around the trail abounds in wildlife, among which Yakushika deer and Yakushika monkeys roam and climb in great numbers. Make sure to bring your camera to capture photos of these distinctive animals, who generally don't mind by human attention.
