Located off the southern coast of Kyushu, the lush, green cedar forests of Yakushima are heralded as one of the most beautiful areas in Japan and designated as a Natural World Heritage Site. Its famous Shiratani Unsuikyo Ravine, which is home to a gorgeous hiking trail and some of the oldest living trees in Japan, served as the inspiration for the enchanting forests featured in Studio Ghibli's Princess Mononoke. Yakushima is often praised as having a mystical and ancient quality to it that makes hiking through the beautiful scenery all the more rewarding.

Video production company Armadas captures that fantastical aspect perfectly with new entry in their stunning "Japan in 8K" series, which explores regions of Japan and highlights their scenic quality in high quality video definition. This breathtaking journey through Yakushima will have you ready to book a plane ticket in no time!
