We went into the World Heritage zone today, only 20% of the island. We found Bambi! Actually we saw so many deer and monkeys. It's a must for animal lovers. 😍 Yakushima deer are much smaller than Hokkaido deer so they are cuter.
We did a 3 hour hike at Yakusugi Land today. The path was steeper than I thought and I lost my footing and slid a few times... We saw some thousand year old yakusugi trees and tasted the pure water from the river. It's a magical place, easily one of the best places I've ever been to. Can't recommend Yakushima enough... 😀 Thanks for the photo, Maria!
