Mt. Miyanouradake Reviews
It was amazing to see the view from the top! The hike was really good to, not too difficult. It took us only a little over 6 hours round trip so an overnight stay in the hut is not necessary. more »
Had a great walk on a perfect fine day. There are different terrains along the track you will not get bored. Saw 10 deers on the way what a big bonus. We booked taxi return trips to and fro Ando... more »
A summit above 1800m at one of the final high-points about as far as you can imagine. A place to celebrate your accomplishments, reflect on how you got here, and most importantly, decide where to go next. May many more conquer it.
The highest point on island Yakushima and also in Kyushu area. The trail is very natural but easily visible. While it takes durability and strength to take to the submit in 1 day, there is no danger involved. The rewards are the lovely animals such as deers and historical trees you can meet all along. And also the openness of the mountain range. Most amazingly, the phone reception is superb on the top despite you are some miles away from Civilization.
