  • It's on the left side of the road to Yakusgilland. Admission fee is 1 yen. It is a big facility. When I took off my shoes and entered the museum, I could feel the trees with my feet, with all the square blocks on the floor. In the museum, you can learn various things such as the secret of the longevity of Yakusugi and the state of old logging. When I went there, there were entries for the Yakushima Photo Contest on display.

  • Even if you can't climb the mountain, you can learn yakushima and cedar here. The size and nature of jomon cedar were on display. The building is old and time-honored, but I think the contents are good. I climb from Abo by car considerably.

  • English audio guide made it worthwhile. Lots of info about the island ecology. I learned something.
  • Yakushima museum review: Really cool museum, a nice hour spent there! We had some time to kill before we left on our ferry back to the mainland and we took a trip to the museum. It only cost 600 yen for adults and 400 for students. There were beautiful displays of preserved parts of trees, information on the landscape and geology of the island, a display of the lodging industry, including the tools used beneficial characteristics of yakushima cedar, a compilation of beautiful photographs taken around the island by locals and visitors, and a section for their fishing industry! There were also some fun things to do for children and cool souvenirs! Definitely recommend a visit if you have some time left after finishing hiking the mountains!
