With your very own private guide, you don't have to worry about missing anything in the forests of Yakushima. Travelling in a large group can be stressful or make it hard to hear, but with a small group of friends and a guide, you can learn all about the area, flora, and fauna while hiking at the pace that suits you best!

On the trail, see the panoramic views from atop the towering Taiko Iwa Boulder, and walk through mossy forests that feel like a wholly different world from the outside.
