Yakushima Island

Trees, trees, trees

A very wise man once said: “While walking among these trees you have the feeling of the woods-not of separate individual trees with their particular shapes and forms-but rather of the entire quality of all the trees”. Yakushima really gives you the ultimate “tree-experience”. Highly recommended!

Yakushima is one of my favorite places to go hiking: great scenery and challenging climbs. Did you get a chance to see Wilson's Stump? Your pictures are gorgeous. It's really hard to grasp the magnitude of the trees without actually being there.

It is a place I definitely want to go to! I wonder which season is the best to go...
