Today we went on the Jomon Sugi trail which took us 7h10mins to complete. It was relatively flat so a pleasant walk. It is a very famous hike as the area is home to the largest cedar tree in the world and possibly the oldest one as well (estimation go from 2000 to 7000 years old). ...

A day in yakushima

A travel blog entry by tipsypixie on Aug 27, 2011
