It is a recommandation if you like japanese nature. The tree is the oldest in japan, around 3.000 years ago. The landscape is also beautiful. more »
Magical place. If it seems hard to get to, you have been mislead by your GPS. I visited the Jomon-Sugi in Yakushima which was also incredible, but this one (these two?) are equally impressive.
this is the third time we come to visit old trees in japan, this twin tree is grand and the area around is nice and quiet, worth to come and see once.
