Tea Tree

Thanks to Yakushima's unique weather, another foreign plant that you can find at Yakushima Senvus Village is the Tea Tree, native to Australia.

Indigenous people of Australia have been using the tea tree as traditional medicine from long ago; and nowadays, it is mostly known for the essential oil extracted from its leaves, used in aromatherapy. 


Every year, around the end of May, Tea tree's white flowers bloom, changing slightly Yakushima Senvus Village's scenery.
