Shirataniun suikyo valley in Yakushima is a model of a popular work of Studio Ghibli 'Princess Mononoke'. The moss grown forest is wrapped in a mysterious atmosphere.

On the way to famous Jomon cedar, there are many trees over 2000 years old and you can touch its power of life even. Jomon cedar is most famous but there are many other spots to see like Daio cedar and Meoto Cedar.
