Japan is a small country, but it extends about 3,000 kilometers from north to south. Therefore, nature and life in Japan are very diverse. The island seen on this page is Yakushima, 60 km south of Kyushu. Here, many cedars of 1000-3000 years old that are registered as UNESCO World Heritage sites welcome you. This island became the model for the animation “Princess Mononoke” directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Why do not you explore this mysterious island?
