Mountain Tours

Yakushima Mountain Tours offer an awesome adventure to the highest range of mountains in southern Japan.  What makes this adventure more intense is that these mountains spring for the sea which is only a few kilometers away from the peaks!   Many of the mountains on Yakushima are pilgrimage destinations for the local inhabitants.  Along the route to Kuromidake there are reminders of the pilgrimage and Tachudake is a pilgrimage destination.  These mountain trails are not only thrilling experiences into amazing natural locations, but they are also sacred trails dating back hundreds of years.

Yakushima Mountain Tours require good health and fitness.  As long as the guest is fit then experience is not required (but certainly useful!).  Along all of these mountain trails there are climbing ropes to ascend up the rock face.  Most are nothing more than novice level.

The Kuromidake peak is in the central highland region and ascends beyond the tree line.  The Tachudake peak is actually at the border of the tree line.  In late May / early June the scenery can be spectacular when the endemic Yakushima rhododendron are blooming.
