Yakushima is one of the Ōsumi Islands belonging to Kagoshima Prefecture,
Japan. The island, 504.88 km2 in area, has a population of 13,178. Access
to the island is by hydrofoil ferry (7 or 8 times a day from Kagoshima),
slow car ferry (once or twice a day from Kagoshima), or by air to Yakushima
Airport (5 times daily from Kagoshima, once daily from Fukuoka and once
daily from Osaka).
Guests take ferry from Kagoshima and stay one night. They climb the mountain
and enjoy outdoor sports in the wood. Administratively, the whole island
is the town of Yakushima. Yakushima is famous for its lush vegetation.
Most of the island has at one time or another been logged (dating back
at least to the early Edo period), but has been extensively replanted
and reseeded since logging ended in the late 1960s, at which time a conservation
regime was established.
