Go Yakushima are a tour guide company based upon the UNESCO island of Yakushima in southern Japan. In 1993, the island was recognized by UNESCO as being the best example of bio-diversity in East Asia. The natural beauty of the island is a great attraction for visitors, but upon one of our tours then the visitors begin to realize that there is more to our island than wonderful areas of untouched nature. Yakushima exemplifies a model relationship between its environment and inhabitants.
Go Yakushima offer a range of tours around our island and can cater tours for a single guest to large groups. We operate tours for families with children of any age and also for guests seeking expertise in flora and fauna of the island.
Go Yakushima are a team of local guides living on the island and we are fluent in English and Japanese. We have years of experience guiding both international and domestic visitors to our island and so travelers are in good hands when they book tours with us. Our guides are qualified in the respective fields from local island and national history to wilderness medical training for overnight expeditions. Our guides are attentive to the requests from guests and we aim to provide informative, fun and memorable tours. We share the knowledge and passion we have for this special island located at the southern tip of Kyushu.
