苔の古道 Ancient Path of Moss

Ancient Path of Moss covered with Yakushima Island’s native mosses

Yakushima Island is sometimes called “the island of mosses” for its rich diversity of moss species.
Ancient Path of Moss gives a sense of healing with a rich, dewy scent of moss.
Saunter along this pleasantly chilly path and you will soon start hearing the limpid stream that originates from the Okudake mountain range.
You might hear the sound of a deer calling in the distance, too.
